Gillis, a phar­ma­col­o­gist and health econ­o­mist by train­ing, has been an ex­ec­u­tive in WPP health prac­tices and agen­cies since 2016, and be­fore that ran WPP’s med­ical ac­cess con­sul­tan­cy WG Group that she orig­i­nal­ly found­ed. With the CEO ap­point­ment, she al­so joins the broad­er VM­LY&R group ex­ec­u­tive team.
