Doctors.net.uk announces management team changes
Following its successful sale to M3 USA in August, Doctors.net.uk - the UK’s largest and most active professional network of doctors - has today announced a new management team, including the promotion of Dr Tim Ringrose to chief executive.
Dr Ringrose, who trained in Nephrology and Intensive Care at Oxford, joined Doctors.net.uk in 2000. As medical director, he has led the expansion of the network’s membership, and activity levels and the provision of knowledge-based services to clients. Tim replaces Richard Adams who, on behalf of the company’s shareholders, led the business to its sale earlier this year.
With a mandate to further grow Doctors.net.uk’s communications, education and market research business services, Tim has announced a change in the management team.
Doctors.net.uk has appointed Simon Grime as managing director of the communications division of Doctors.net.uk. Simon, who was previously head of healthcare communications for the company, will lead further development of the targeted communications services that Doctors.net.uk provides to a wide range of clients across pharmaceutical, medical devices, IT, healthcare providers, public and third sectors.
medeConnect Healthcare Insight, the market research division of Doctors.net.uk, which has introduced a number of new products and services during 2011 and which is rapidly expanding its international research capabilities, remains under the leadership of Anna Garofalo, managing director.
Dr Ringrose said: "Doctors.net.uk has become firmly established not only as the UK’s most popular and trusted online network for UK doctors, but also as the channel of choice for a wide range of healthcare companies and organisations to understand and engage with target groups of doctors. Under Richard’s leadership over the past four years, our business model and commercial focus has been transformed. We are incredibly grateful for all of his hard work."
"Now, as part of the M3 group, Doctors.net.uk has exciting potential to further grow services for doctors and the healthcare sector. We will continue to innovate new ways in which healthcare organisations can understand, communicate and engage with doctors."
