President, WE Global Health and North America Eastern Region

As President of WE Global Health, Stephanie Marchesi launched the agency’s next-generation health offering, which has been uniquely built to help global clients in pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, digital health, and devices and diagnostics navigate the intersection of health, technology and the consumer. As President of North America’s Eastern Region, she headlines efforts for WE offices on the East Coast of the U.S., including client services, business development and financial performance. In both her roles, Marchesi champions forward-thinking communications approaches over traditional efforts, helping healthcare organizations and brands break through with their stories of innovation and purpose.

As an award-winning, global integrated communications and marketing expert, Marchesi focuses on building and activating brands and reputations. Marchesi is a recognized problem solver, with an innate ability to diagnose a client’s central business problem. She leverages her perspective to make innovative connections and identify transformational solutions that meet evolving client needs and maximize the impact of available resources. Not only is she a strategist, she also is an ideator, orchestrator, collaborator, integrator and hands-on practitioner. Before joining WE, she held leadership positions at five of the industry’s largest public relations firms, including FleishmanHillard, Ketchum, MSL Group and BCW. She has counseled many Fortune 500 companies such as Colgate, Darden, Eli Lilly, Nike, Pfizer, Procter & Gamble, and Wal-Mart. In addition, Marchesi has deep experience in healthcare/pharmaceuticals, consumer packaged goods, corporate reputation, social media, and in operating and evolving professional service firms. Marchesi sits on the advisory board for startup iSpy Technologies. She’s also a passionate public speaker focusing on a range of topics, including “The Health-Tech Culture Clash, and “The Evolution of the Agency: The Disappearance of Differentiation.” She is a member of the Young Presidents Organization and is a past board member of the YPO New York City Chapter.

Stephanie lives in Connecticut with her husband and two almost grown boys. She travels — a lot — and you are most likely to find her on an airplane. When she is grounded, she loves to cook and finds yoga helps her balance it all.
