  • We've recruited a new Chief Revenue Officer, Chief People Officer, General Counsel and internally promoted a new Chief Marketing Officer - leading to an all new Exec Team
  • Alongside the four exec hires, we've also welcomed Phil Barrington as our new Head of Business Development

We are shaking things up by welcoming an experienced industry heavyweight, General Counsel and a strategic people leader to the company. Alongside our promotion of internal talent - we're bringing plenty of leadership into our already strong executive team of Phil Doye, Hazel Sagar and Tim Hall.

In addition to the new Exec team, Phil Barrington joins us as our new Head of Business Development. He brings a wealth of industry framework experience from his previous role at HealthTrust Europe.

With the success of the previous year coupled with a strong Q1 and our continued ambition to disrupt the market, we feel these key roles are exactly what we need to accelerate our next phase of growth.

Since Phil Doye took over the business in 2019, we're pleased to have gone from strength to strength. We've become Carbon Neutral, doubled our revenue and continue investing into our business. This includes a 50% increase in employees and a commitment for 5% of all company time to be donated to charity and community work via our in-house community scheme. 

With the new recruits, our next focus is to invest in systems to allow for increased growth including in talent and digital execution - alongside our commitment to becoming a BCorp.
