Tuesday, 19 May 2015

Media Release

Medicines Australia is pleased to announce two new senior appointments as part of its ongoing commitment to represent and promote Australia’s innovative medicines industry.

James Boyce will take up the new position of Director of Communications and Government Relations and Dr Martin Snoke has been appointed as Manager of Policy and Research.

James will start his role at Medicines Australia this week while Dr Snoke will join the team in June.

James comes to Medicines Australia after almost three and a half years as Senior Press Secretary to Prime Minister Tony Abbott MP.

His experience working closely with members of Parliament as well as a decade of experience as a senior journalist will be a valuable addition to the Medicines Australia team at a crucial time for the local medicines industry.

Dr Snoke currently works for the Parliamentary Budget Office and has previously worked as an assistant director in the Department of Health.

He has extensive experience in economic modelling and policy development and his skills and insights will be an important addition to the Medicines Australia team.

Medicines are one of Australia’s biggest exports with an industry that employs around 15 thousand people who work every day to provide Australians with fast, affordable access to the latest generation medicines so they can live longer, healthier lives.

Both James and Dr Snoke will work closely with members and stakeholders, including government and the community, to promote the important role of the medicines industry in Australia.
