Chavez, former Juice Pharma leader, brings over 35 years of experience in pharma marketing
New York City, NY (March 20, 2023) – BGB Group (BGB), a New York City based award-winning pharma marketing firm, announced that Art Chavez has been named as the agency’s first-ever Chief of Business Integration. Chavez comes to BGB from Juice Pharma where he served as Chief Client Officer and Chief Strategy Officer.
In this newly established role, Chavez will work with BGB department heads to manage the integration of the agency’s new capabilities into its existing portfolio of services, with an initial focus on digital, payer marketing and market access, and scientific consulting. He will also oversee BGB’s growth team to manage the development of expansion strategies for these new capabilities while driving new business and organic growth across the agency’s existing core capabilities.
“Art is a well-recognized leader in the pharma marketing industry, and we are thrilled that he has assumed this new and critical role at BGB,” said Teresa Day, President at BGB Group. “Our agency is growing, and we are continuing to invest in both our services and talent. With Art joining our team, we have a top-notch leader with a broad range of experience in the pharma space and an impressive track-record of business performance. He is the right person to lead our expanding teams and growth strategies.”
“There couldn’t be a better fit for us,” said Julie Yoon, EVP, Managing Director. “For years, in our previous roles, Art has been an incredible mentor: teaching me the operational side of our business, helping me to hone business-development skills, and most important, showing me every day what it means to lead by example. These are the traits that I know he’ll bring to the agency that will further strengthen our already formidable leadership team.”
Chavez has helped drive growth and improved operations in both large network agencies as well as startup environments. Prior to Juice, Chavez served as Executive Vice President at Grey Healthcare Group (GHG) before joining GSW Worldwide as President. He has also held partner roles at The Bloc and The Stoneworks.
“This new role at BGB is the perfect fit to leverage my experience and fulfill my career goals,” Art Chavez, newly appointed Chief of Business Integration at BGB Group. “The agency’s forward-thinking culture made it exactly the right fit. BGB is growing exponentially, and I’ve come at an exciting time where I can apply my focus on innovation and collaborate with first-class teams. I am excited to continue building on BGB’s momentum and to create one-of-a-kind experiences for our employees, our clients, the brands we support, and ultimately the customers we serve.”
Chavez’s new appointment comes at a time when the agency has experienced an expansion of capabilities and growth to match. Over the past year, BGB has added and elevated several key leadership roles including the appointment of a new president and the agency’s first-ever chief digital officer.
These leadership changes will expand BGB’s focus on employee engagement, and will seamlessly integrate key capabilities including scientific consulting, digital innovation, payer marketing, and personalized physician and patient engagement strategies. The agency continues to boast one of the largest medical teams in the pharma marketing industry—more than one-hundred employees have earned doctorate degrees in life sciences and are integrated into every brand team. These teams support a diverse client roster that includes both emerging biotech and global blockbuster brands.
