In Gil Bashe’s own words: “Communication was always an interest, specifically in health and gov’t-a passion for helping people stay alive and the decisions surrounding their care – recognizing there was no need to eliminate one path for the other. Thus, public policy, communication and healthcare always embodied my early roles – in the military as a paratrooper unit combat medic, in gov’t affairs for a global non-profit and in work with the Australian Government.
“On the battlefield or policy huddle, I saw how communication will always be part of the care.pushing for excellence elevates client messages and value, with the clients being the conduit for making great things happen. Professionally hitting that mark enabled me to lead three agencies – Medicus PR, Hill & Knowlton and Makovsky – selected as “Most Admired Health Agencies.” FINN has already been invited to that elite circle of excellence by The Holmes Report. My career journey has included stints as an industry lobbyist, worldwide agency CEO, and part of one of the nation’s top private equity groups.”
