As our Vice President of Editorial Services and Corporate Communications, Ellen ensures the quality of content—both internal and external—for all of our clients’ brands, as well as for the Dudnyk brand. She is responsible for setting standards to guarantee our clients are receiving the highest quality product possible, while always looking for ways to promote, enhance, and protect the Dudnyk brand reputation.

Ellen’s early career as editor and then managing editor gave her deep expertise in FDA submission processes and regulation, launch readiness and execution, and people management and training. She has worked tirelessly to bring many new brands to launch, while ensuring flawless tactical executions for brands that may be at a later stage in their product lifecycle. Her experience spans both print and digital projects and multiple therapeutic areas, including high science brands in oncology and rare disease.

Ellen has been influential in fueling Dudnyk’s recent trend of organic and new business growth. She is also highly involved in agency self-promotion activities and is always seeking ways to increase exposure of the Dudnyk brand. She is relentless in her pursuit of editorial opportunities both on and offline for Dudnyk’s executive thought leaders and most recently secured and contributed to the agency’s first bylined article in MM&M.

A true mentor and seeker of knowledge at heart, Ellen is the biggest driver of one of our core values at the agency, Keep Learning. She was one of the first students to earn an MBA in social media marketing, returning to school after many years away to experiment with online learning. To benefit colleagues, Ellen created Dudnyk University, an ongoing series of internal classes and seminars designed to enrich professional and personal growth. She was also instrumental in creating the summer intern program and Dudnyk Training Camp, which pairs a “newbie” with a Dudnyk veteran employee to enhance onboarding and integration.
