Santis Health expands its communications offering and welcomes Bradley Metlin as Senior Consultant, Communications

Toronto, ON – June 15, 2022 – Santis Health is proud to announce the expansion of its communications team with the addition of Bradley Metlin as a Senior Consultant. Based in Toronto, Bradley will leverage his extensive media relations and government relations experience to support Santis’ clients.

Bradley joins Santis after serving in multiple senior-level communications roles in the Government of Ontario. In his roles as Press Secretary and as Director of Communications for several Cabinet Ministers, Bradley was responsible for the strategy, media outreach and roll-out of key government announcements. He has previously worked in the offices of the Associate Minister of Transportation, Minister of Labour, Training and Skills Development and the Minister of Children, Community and Social Services.

In addition, Bradley also has prior experience in consulting for health care clients, working on political engagement plans for pharmaceutical, long-term care and other businesses.

“Santis’ communications practice has grown significantly in the past year as our clients shift gears post-pandemic,” said Patrick Nelson, Principal at Santis Health. “Bradley’s knowledge and expertise in provincial politics paired with his impressive communications background allows us to further diversify our offering to our clients across Canada.”

Following an unprecedented year of growth, Bradley’s arrival is one of several team changes that further bolster the breadth and depth of Santis’ communications offering. Santis recently strengthened its digital expertise with the addition of Shay Alford to its communications team as a Consultant, Digital and Marketing. Since joining in April 2022, Shay has successfully led the development of social media plans, communications audits, web development, as well as digital and traditional ad buy strategies.

Shay’s creative abilities and digital skills enable him to connect broad objectives to tangible results. He previously worked for the Canadian Tire Corporation and Branded Cities, where he developed media plans and creative content that transformed their digital experience and pushed the boundaries of traditional marketing.
