"Innovating to meet the perpetually evolving needs of digital, social and mobile consumers is hard enough," says Dorothy Wetzel, co-founder and executive marketer at Extrovertic. "Doing it in the politically and emotionally charged healthcare arena is the ultimate challenge. But with Virilion's more than a decade of experience dealing with cause-related issues and crisis management, this venture greatly enhances our ability to create new 'pharma-safe' solutions that build brands."

"Virilion has long specialized in digital and social media for categories in the public eye," said Dan Solomon, CEO of Virilion. "We believe this competence, combined with Extrovertic's deep healthcare knowledge and creative acumen, will help pharma clients more effectively engage consumers in today's changing communications environment."

"DTC advertising is under assault. Clients today need new non-traditional creative solutions to help them tell more cohesive and engaging stories across all channels," added Mark Drossman, Extrovertic's co-founder and executive creative director, "and in the process, create more engaged brand advocates."

Extrovertic was founded by industry veterans Dorothy Wetzel -- formerly of Saatchi Healthcare and Pfizer Consumer Marketing -- and Mark Drossman -- formerly of Ogilvy and Euro RSCG -- in January. The agency's client roster includes a number of biotech companies.

Virilion has offices in Austin, Boston, New York and Washington, DC. Since 1997, the firm has worked for clients in categories ranging from food, agriculture and energy to media and entertainment. In the healthcare sector, Virilion has worked for Abbott, the Pharmaceutical Manufacturers of America, and Easter Seals.

EV Healthcare will be led out of the firms' New York offices.
