BOSTON – March 9, 2015 – PAN Communications, an integrated public relations, content marketing and digital media agency for the technology, consumer, and healthcare industries, today announced the strategic hires of Lauren Arnold and Darlene Doyle as vice presidents joining the agency’s growing technology and healthcare practices. These additions come on the heels of PAN’s record growth in 2014, spotlighted by a variety of successful factors including new clients, organic growth and expanded integrated communication service offerings.
“As PAN begins moving to a more integrated communications model with all forms of media touch points, it is vital to map our leaders’ skill sets to the challenges that our clients face today,” notes PAN President and founder, Philip A.

Her depth of knowledge is comprised of mobile, B2B integration, collaboration, cloud, CRM and healthcare IT as well as medical devices and diagnostics. Lauren began her career at Schwartz Communications. Over the course of her 15 years at the firm, she quickly rose to become one of the firm’s sought-after VPs working in technology and healthcare PR.
Darlene Doyle joins PAN’s technology practice, having held past positions both in-house and at agencies over the past 15 years.
