We had a fantastic time partnering a privately-owned private healthcare business located in London. Established for around 13 years, this business provided women’s health services and had gained a very strong reputation for quality of care.
The business had grown organically through word of mouth and patient recommendations and the shareholders gained an appetite to invest in its brand and embark on an ambitious growth strategy that could see it become a national operation.
The business had a strong management team to manage the business day to day but the strategic decisions were passed to 3 key shareholders who all had full-time jobs elsewhere. This slowed decision making and the potential pace of growth of the business. The shareholders, therefore, decided to create a new role which started out as a Centre Director and ended up being a Director of Corporate Development (as it was focused on driving profitable growth and not just maintaining the status quo).
