HealthTech poaches CFO from Babylon
Posted on June 2, 2021 by Jonathan Symcox
HealthTech Visionable has appointed a CTO and its first CFO following rapid growth in 2020.
The London company, which has developed a digital collaboration platform enabling clinicians to deliver better patient outcomes, welcomes Christèle Brouste as CFO and Antony Martin as CTO.
Visionable raised £17 million of investment last year and is aiming to expand into new markets and territories.
As Group Director of Finance at Babylon Health, Brouste built and led the financial organisation of the business to ensure strategic, commercial and operational goals were met. Her wealth of experience includes senior roles at both Apple and Cisco, working closely with leadership teams to support business investment and development plans.
Martin replaces Rachel Dunscombe, who will remain in an advisory capacity, as CTO. He will work on expanding the company’s existing portfolio of products and manage the rollout of Visionable’s partnerships.
Martin has over 25 years of experience in the telecommunications industry and 20-plus years working in US-based companies, having held senior technology roles at video communications company Vidyo and cloud solutions provider Dialogic.
CEO and co-founder Alan Lowe said: “Christèle and Antony’s experience will be invaluable to Visionable as we enter an exciting next chapter in our growth.
“Both have a proven ability to grow companies, teams and technologies at a rapid pace which will help us take our video collaboration platform to the next level.
“I have no doubt that they will contribute both personally and professionally as Visionable advances its range of products and services and I look forward to working closely with them and the rest of the leadership team to improve access to healthcare for all.”
Brouste added: “I wouldn’t have moved positions for any other company. Visionable and the inspiring co-founders, Alan Lowe and Lord Victor Adebowale, are making such a huge impact on the healthcare sector and they have a vision I can fully embrace and support.
“This role allows me to utilise my experience in driving growth and laying the right foundations for making a tangible difference to healthcare. Visionable is a truly unique company that I’m very excited to be a part of.”
Martin commented: “Visionable is a dynamic company with a clear vision, at an exciting stage in its growth trajectory.
“I am looking forward to working with the team on the opportunities and challenges ahead and to applying my experience in video technology to develop Visionable’s capability even further for the benefit of healthcare providers and patients.”
