Sudler & Hennessey

Executive Assistant

Job Location US-New York


From our home base in Manhattan, Sentrix Health Communications has virtually exploded onto the pharma scene. The global pharma scene.

Our agency is staffed with talented writers, artists, account supervisors, and more, each taking pride in every single piece we create, every single challenge we tackle. We stress creativity, agility, innovation, and that “small-town-Manhattan” mindset that sets us apart from the herd (and makes us a fine place to start or further your career).


At Sentrix Health Communications, we don’t just look for opportunities. We create them.
