OVERLAND PARK, KS (April 18, 2018) Intouch Solutions, a marketing agency serving the pharmaceutical industry, is proud to announce that Wendy Blackburn, executive vice president, marketing and communications, was chosen as part of Medical Marketing & Media’s (MM&M) 2018 Hall of Femme.

The MM&M Hall of Femme recognizes female leaders in the biopharma, medical device, and agency sectors of the healthcare industry. Now in its third year, the award honors women who have made a significant impact in marketing and communications, as well as in helping advance women leaders.

Blackburn, who was nominated by her peers, plays a vital role at Intouch. During her 15-year tenure, Blackburn’s continued leadership has contributed to the agency expanding from 20 employees to 700, and over $110 million in revenue.

Under her direction, the Intouch team implemented its ambitious “#ALLin” program, for which the agency invested its own time and resources to hack healthcare for patients and their caregivers. Currently, Blackburn leads a cross-office team on a program called Forever Welcome, an initiative that promotes cultural acceptance and shares a message of unity.

“It’s an honor to be named among MM&M’s 2018 Hall of Femme leading ladies,” said Blackburn. “I’m excited for the many opportunities we have to advance marketing and communications in healthcare, and look forward to connecting with other women in our industry through the Hall of Femme.”

Blackburn and 15 other female healthcare leaders will receive their awards at a reception on
June 7, 2018 in New York City. The awards reception will also honor this year’s 20 MM&M Women to Watch. Blackburn will be featured in MM&M this summer.

“Wendy brings out the best in everyone around her,” said Faruk Capan, founder of Intouch Solutions. “She leads by example and encourages others to produce the highest-quality work and find the best solutions, no matter how large or small. Her hard work and deep understanding of our industry play a large role in our continued growth.”
