Chair, {my}dentist


I am currently Executive Chair of {my}dentist, one of the UK’s leading dental service organisations, with over 600 practices nationwide. Prior to assuming the position as Chair in 2023, I served as CEO for six years and led the business through an SBO in 2021, partnering with Palamon Capital Partners (an existing shareholder) to acquire Carlyle’s 75% stake in the business.

I am also the Non-exec Chair of Kingsbridge Healthcare Group, a specialist hospital business in Ireland, which received private equity backing from Foresight Group in 2019.

Prior to this, between 2012 and 2016, I was CEO of The Priory Group, Europe’s largest independent provider of mental health services, owned at the time by Advent. The Priory Group had 322 specialist facilities across the length and breadth of the UK and had sales of £600m. I led the company through a successful trade sale in 2015/2016 to the US-listed healthcare company, Acadia.

I particularly enjoy helping PepTalks members who are:
