Intouch Solutions, a marketing agency serving the pharmaceutical industry, is proud to announce that two of its associates were recently recognized by major industry publications. Marty Canniff, senior vice president, executive creative director, was named one of the PM360ELITE Award recipients in the creative director category, and Jordan Deatherage, director, social media, received Medical Marketing & Media’s (MM&M) Women to Watch Award.

The ELITE Award recognizes the most influential people in the healthcare industry who are generating extraordinary results. Recipients are the industry’s most powerful minds and are responsible for designing the future of healthcare. Canniff’s work has fundamentally impacted how healthcare marketers operate. He was key to the creation of Intouch Solutions’ Chicago office, and has a 360° understanding of what the client wants and what the end user needs, despite industry restrictions.

“I am surprised and honored to receive the recognition,” said Canniff. “I have the privilege of working in the entrepreneurial environment of Intouch, which allows me the freedom to push boundaries and has the broad expertise and technical chops to make things real. There is no place I’d rather be than at the crossroads of health and technology. It is a remarkable time!”

The MM&M Women to Watch Award is designed to salute 20 aspiring healthcare, commercial and marketing executives who distinguish themselves in the mid-stages of their careers. Recipients were selected based on their unique skill sets and standout performance on behalf of a brand or a campaign for their organization. Deatherage successfully worked with multiple departments for a key account to add another dimension to an already active social community. In the next five years, Deatherage plans to continuously explore and leverage emerging technologies to connect patients and healthcare professionals with crucial healthcare information.

“I’m amazed to be nominated by my coworkers for this award!” said Deatherage. “Working at Intouch has been such a professional gift to me and my family. I love what I get to do every day, and having others recognize that and see potential in me means the world.”

“We are proud to have such innovative, dedicated and talented individuals at Intouch recognized by the pharma industry,” said Faruk Capan, CEO of Intouch Solutions. “Marty and Jordan continue to set high standards for not only our company, but also the industry at large. I applaud and appreciate the work they do day in and day out.”
