|GP Bullhound acted as exclusive financial advisor to Dudnyk, a Philadelphia-based healthcare marketing communications agency, on its sale to the Fishawack Group of Companies, one of the world’s leading independent healthcare communication specialists, based in Manchester, UK.
Independently owned for the past 25 years, Dudnyk is an award-winning, full-service agency that specializes in creating insight-driven, authentic brand experiences that unite specialty physicians and their patients.
Dudnyk President, Christopher Tobias, commented: “By joining forces with Fishawack, Dudnyk will be able to offer clients an even stronger service offering, including expertise in additional verticals like scientific communications and medical education. We are also excited to further expand our global capabilities, both commercially and medically, for our clients who operate on a scale outside of the US.”

We are delighted to have advised Dudnyk and to have helped them find the ideal partner for the next phase of growth.”
