Finn Partners has acquired Hyderus, Dublin-based health communications and policy firm.

Launched in 2002, Hyderus has worked in the areas of public health, drug development, marketing communications, risk perception, and crisis management.

Co-founders Mark Chataway and Christopher Nial will lead Finn Partners’ EMEA public health group and report to Gil Bashe, chair global health and purpose.

As part of Finn Partners’ global health practice, Chataway and Nial will work closely with Fern Lazar, managing partner & global health practice lead; and DC-based Richard Hatzfeld, senior partner & global public health lead.

Hyderus has teamed with Finn Partners during the past year in the EMEA and Asia regions on vaccine access and public health initiatives.

Joining the New York-based independent firm is “a natural next step that formalizes an already strong connection,” said Chataway.

Hyderus will be rebranded as Hyderus, a Finn Partners Company.

Finn Partners ranks No. 6 on O’Dwyer’s roster of healthcare firms with $44.2M in fee income during 2021.
