Many will be aware that GP Care has been considering its options around the recruitment of a new CEO for the company. It was felt this did not need to be a rushed decision and the requirements of the business are altering as the market environment changes.
GP Care is delighted to announce that a new CEO has been appointed. Garry Reason joined us on 16th September. As well as being a qualified Executive Coach, Garry has a very broad and extremely accomplished commercial background in leading and developing businesses linked to the health care sector. His last two commercial appointments were as President of Nutricia North America and until June 2014, he was General Manager N. Europe for Mead Johnson Nutrition. Garry is in the process of setting up Sculpt Transformation Ltd, his own Executive Coaching business, but is keen to join GP Care, in an interim capacity, as he establishes his new business.
Garry was initially approached with a view to taking up a Non-Executive Director role on the Board, but it quickly became apparent that he is in a position and is willing to act as CEO for an interim period of 6 months. With his leadership experience he is ideally suited to this role at this time and he will be able to lead the company capably with skill and expertise. This period of time will be important to identify the next steps to take with the hope to continue to retain him in a NED position following this.
Everyone at GP Care welcomes Garry to the team and look forward to him joining our shareholders at the AGM on 16th October.
