He expanded UK revenue 7-fold by winning new NHS outsourced diagnostic service contracts and through the acquisition of four companies including those specialising in drug and veterinary testing. At Synlab, he became the Group Chief Commercial Officer and latterly CEO of a fast-growing region spanning 15 countries across Central and Eastern Europe, Middle East and West Africa.
