BOSTON, May 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Seniorlink, Inc., a provider of care collaboration solutions, is pleased to announce that Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer Mary M. Gallagher was named to the 2017 PM360 ELITE 100, in the Transformational Leaders category. The PM360 ELITE (Exceptional • Leaders • Innovators • Transformers • Entrepreneurs), published for the past three years by PM360 magazine, represent the most influential people in the healthcare industry today.
Gallagher has worked in the healthcare industry for 20+ years at major pharmaceutical companies and advertising agencies — including Merck, Sunovion, McCann Health and more recently at Hill Holliday in Boston, where she helped launch their award-winning pharmaceutical practice. When Gallagher joined Seniorlink in 2015, she was motivated by the opportunity to increase awareness for the Caregiver Nation: the 44 million people who selflessly give of themselves to care for loved ones.
Gallagher has brought new energy to Seniorlink's mission to provide services and support to this population. Her vision is to do more than just create campaigns showing the value of caregivers. Gallagher wants to start a movement. As part of her efforts, she designed "Thank You Caregiver Nation," an initiative that kicked off during National Family Caregivers month (November 2016) with a nationwide contest for individuals to nominate caregivers to receive free meals for a month.
"Mary's commitment to Seniorlink's mission has been exceptional, and she has played an instrumental role in helping our company find ways to innovate and expand the services we provide to our caregiver community," said Tom Riley, Chief Executive Officer of Seniorlink. "We are thrilled that she received this significant industry award."
The PM360 ELITE Awards were established in 2015 to recognize individuals who have made a significant impact to the healthcare industry throughout their careers. More than 500 submissions were received and nominees were evaluated based on their accomplishments; testimonials from their bosses, clients, and colleagues; and supporting evidence that reflects the impact of their efforts. A total of 100 winners were selected across 18 categories, including Creative Directors, Data Miners, Digital Crusaders, Disrupters, Drug Researchers and Developers, Entrepreneurs, Launch Experts, Leaders of the Future, Marketing Teams, Master Educators, Mentors, Patient Advocates, PR Gurus, Sales MVPs, Strategists, Talent Acquisition Leaders, Tech-know Geeks, and Transformational Leaders.
"Each of the 2017 PM360 ELITE 100 demonstrated immense talent in their ability to impact our industry," says Anna Stashower, CEO and Publisher of PM360. "These people represent the best the industry has to offer, including veterans who have made their mark over and over and up-and-comers who are just getting started."
Gallagher and the rest of the winners will be honored at a celebratory event on July 11th in New York City at the rooftop bar 230 FIFTH. Tickets are available for purchase at www.pm360online.com/elitetickets.
