Davies Veterinary Specialists (DVS), the UK’s leading multi-specialist small animal referral centre, has announced a restructuring of the ownership and management of the practice.

DVS shareholders (L-R) Jerry Davies, Richard Whitelock, Clive Elwood, Nat Whitley and Mike ThomasHaving forged “an impeccable reputation” following 12 years of successful operation, DVS (which is based on the Herts/Beds border) welcomes new shareholders from the directorial team in order to secure the future success of the practice.

Clive Elwood succeeds Jerry Davies as managing director and, as a consequence, Dr Elwood will have a reduced clinical commitment. Richard Whitelock takes on the new role of deputy managing director while remaining full time in the clinic, Mike Thomas continues as financial director and Jerry becomes chairman of the board, with some clinical and representative duties. David Gould and Nat Whitley have joined Clive, Richard, Mike and Jerry as shareholders, while the board of directors remains unchanged.

Dr Elwood said: “This exciting development represents the next phase in the evolution of the practice and will allow a progression of management and ownership without disruption to staff or clients so that we continue to deliver leading multi-specialist care.”

Dr Davies said: “I am proud of what the practice has achieved. I am confident that the new management structure will maintain the practice ethos and bring fresh ideas that will ensure we stay at the forefront of veterinary specialist practice. As chairman, I will continue to enjoy contributing to the growth and success of the practice that bears my name.”
