Its clients include Novartis, Novo Nordisk, Pfizer, Xian-Janssen, Beijing FH Land, and the Ministry of Culture of China.

Bin (Simon) Sun will remain at the helm of Dreams and take the title of Managing Director, Publicis Life Brands Dreams, along with Kathy Zhao, who will become General Manager, Publicis Life Brands Dreams.

Nick Colucci, CEO and President of PHCG, said, “Adding Dreams to the PHCG portfolio further advances our key strategy to enhance our presence in emerging markets. We are especially excited to have expanded our offering in China-a market we see with tremendous potential for healthcare communications.” Bin (Simon) Sun, Managing Director of Publicis Life Brands Dreams, added, “I am pleased that Dreams will become part of the Publicis Healthcare Communications Group. This is an important step in our growth strategy. Working alongside PHCG agencies allows us to benefit from the global expertise of the leading healthcare communications network and will allow us to become a leading healthcare agency in China.”
