Shirin Bhan
President & Founder

A highly accomplished public relations professional and founding President of KNB Communications, Shirin Bhan directs KNB’s vision and strategy. Her passion for healthcare and a unique vision of what public relations can achieve has helped her – and her clients – to earn a reputation as credible, authoritative and innovative industry leaders.


From a specialized background in both the agency and corporate PR and a family dominated by medical professionals, she founded KNB as the first PR agency dedicated exclusively to healthcare technology in 1998. Since that time she has guided KNB through intense phases of growth. She has spoken on healthcare technology and the value of PR at numerous forums, including e-Healthcare World, TIE New York, E-Entrepreneur, NetIP, and Boston University. Shirin has served on the board of TETHIC (The Emerging Technologies and Healthcare Innovations Congress) and eHelthcareWorld. She has also served as the chair of the advisory PR committee for HIMSS (Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society) and was invited to be a member of the WBL Foundation (Women Business Leaders of the U.S. Health Care Industry).


Shirin received her education in Mass Communications with primary focus in Public Relations and a minor in English from Boston University.
