I am Tim Clover, CEO of Rayner, the only manufacturer of intraocular lenses in the UK. I led a MBO in 2017 with Phoenix Equity Partners and a SBO with CVC Capital Partners in 2021. During my tenure, Rayner has concluded several acquisitions to expand and diversify the company into a global leader in eye care.
Previously I was CEO of Moonray Healthcare, a private equity fund investing proprietary capital from Fidelity Worldwide Investments into the healthcare sector. Landmark investments included Optegra, which deployed a buy and build strategy to create a group of 23 specialist eye hospitals.
My earlier career was with Allergan where I was a founder of the spin-off business AMO Inc which was listed on NYSE as a global provider of ophthalmic products. AMO grew rapidly through several landmark acquisitions.
I enjoy sharing my experiences (good and bad) with PepTalks members, in particular on:
- International growth
- Driving consistent and sustainable growth.
