MEET THE TEAM
Aurora Archer and Pamela Raitt are the co-founders of Bellatrix Group. They met in 2009 as client (Aurora) and agency creative lead (Pamela) to build and launch a billion dollar pharmaceutical brand targeting patients with depression. Both came from a design-thinking and technology background and they bonded over their belief in the methodologies of that industry. Ultimately they were able to use authentic stories about real patients and their families, told through innovative technology platforms, to create a commercial gangbuster. They formed Bellatrix Group in 2018 to continue to bring their vision, passion, and values to the healthcare industry, and to help it navigate much-needed disruption in a way that will create better outcomes for all. The Bellatrix leadership team has a combined 50 years’ experience guiding clients to solutions, and serving on the client side as champions for transformation.

WHY ARE WE CALLED BELLATRIX?
Bellatrix is one of the four navigational stars in Orion that are used for celestial navigation. It also means female warrior.
And we just so happen to be a couple of female badasses.
