Abigail Last, from Red Door, also joins Porter Novelli’s health and wellness team as an associate director, and George Hickling, Charlie Price, Jessica Greenman and Alexander Emich all join as senior account executives.

The health and wellness team has almost doubled in size since 2015 on the back of a series of new business wins.

Nicole Yost, head of health and wellness at PN London, said: “As PN London continues to grow and expand as a hub for global communications, Matthew’s in-house experience and viewpoint help us further strengthen our health and wellness practice.”

Prior to AbbVie, where he was responsible for all external, above-brand communications, Foster worked at Waggener Edstrom and Hill & Knowlton. He began his healthcare communications career at Burson-Marsteller.
