Ingenica Solutions, the company behind the first GS1 certified inventory management solution in UK healthcare, today announces two new additions to its board of directors.
The new directors will be instrumental to future growth, and help Ingenica build on its enormous success, and further develop its market position.
Bill Ward joins as non-executive director, and brings extensive healthcare experience at executive and board level. Bill started his executive career within the NHS running large acute units. He then moved to the private sector to run a Bupa Hospital, and became a regional director for 14 hospitals before progressing to chief operating officer for Bupa Hospitals.
Previously Bill has been seconded to the Department of Health as well as Kaiser Permanente in the USA, and served as an independent non-executive director of the Al Noor Group PLC, which owns hospitals and clinics in the UAE. “I have been fortunate enough to work in a number of senior leadership roles previously, and I look forward to working with the team, and using my experience to help Ingenica fulfill its ambitious growth plans in the years ahead,” said Bill Ward.
James Purves also steps up to the position as non-executive director. James, former managing director and majority shareholder of AML UK Ltd, helped the company grow rapidly to £10m annual revenue before successfully exiting to a listed trade partner. James has vast experience of tendering for both large public sector and commercial projects, developing long term partnerships with public sector bodies, and growing small businesses.
James Purves said, “Ingenica Solutions provides a major leap forward for NHS Trusts, offering unmatched solutions that significantly improve operational and financial efficiency. Ingenica has a first-class reputation in the healthcare sector, and it is a great privilege to join the Board of Directors at such a pivotal time in its development.”
Nicola Hall, managing director said, “Ingenica Solutions is in great shape, and we have maintained our dominant position in the healthcare market. It is a pleasure to welcome two outstanding individuals to our board of directors, who both have the calibre and experience to ensure a very bright future for Ingenica. Their understanding of the sector will prove crucial to the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead.”
Our cohesive team has clear and demonstrable success as thought leaders and practical project leaders in healthcare.
Flexible, user-friendly and intuitive for the entire workforce, our technology brings benefits to individuals across the NHS, from senior leaders and ICT technicians to frontline clinicians.
At Ingenica Solutions we believe we offer the best healthcare resource management solution on the market, with a successful track record in implementation, and proven return on investment.
Our support service is built on the concept of creating long term, mutually beneficial relationships with our customers.
