Diana Littman Paige Named a Luminary by the Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association
Diana Littman Paige, MMC’s Executive Vice President, Consumer Lifestyle & Health was honored as an industry Luminary by the Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association at HBA’s Woman of the Year (WOTY) luncheon today in New York City. Since joining MMC in 2007, Diana has developed the Health & Well-Being practice into a marketing powerhouse that represents a wide range of pharmaceutical and consumer health brands, including Merck, Bayer, Novo Nordisk, Eisai, Celgene and more. In 2014, Diana took on leadership of Rx Mosaic as a specialty division of MMC, focused solely on pharmaceutical and scientific communications.
Under Diana’s leadership, MMC Health & Well-Being was named Health Care Agency of the Year by the Holmes Report in 2012 and her healthcare clients have been honored with some of the most prestigious awards in the communications industry: a Platinum SABRE for Best Campaign of the Year, Global SABREs for Marketing to Youth and Marketing to Women, Silver Anvil, PR Week Healthcare Campaign of the Year and multiple Effies and WOMMYs for integrated campaigns. In 2010, Diana was named to PR Week’s 40 Under 40, recognizing those who represent the future of the communications industry.
Diana attributes her success in part to mentors that encouraged her to “stretch, experiment and grow.”
“Throughout my career, I’ve been surrounded by strong leaders who have both directly and indirectly shaped my approach to client and agency leadership. I’ve been fortunate to have an incredible mentor in Marina – she has always shared open and honest feedback, given me ample room to “figure it out,” and taken time to celebrate successes,” she said, adding “This award has inspired me to give even more back to the rising stars who represent the future.”
“This award is so well deserved for Diana,” said MMC CEO Marina Maher. “She has made an incredible impact at MMC, and not just for her success in building our clients’ brands, but for the caring culture she fosters internally. What I admire most about Diana is the confidence with which she makes decisions and her conviction in carrying them out. Those are the qualities of a true leader.”
Diana joins the 2015 class of HBA Luminaries with 25 other women whose impact in the healthcare industry will continue to be recognized for years to come.
The HBA is dedicated to advancing the careers of women in the healthcare field worldwide. According to HBA, The Luminary Award honors healthcare professionals “who actively mentor and sponsor others, with a track record of helping other women’s careers, and is a shining example of transformational leadership.”
