Midlands based YourVets has appointed ex-CVS regional manager Janet Martin as company CEO.
Mrs Martin took on the role as of April 1, 2012, when previous MD Jonathan Stirling moved sideways to the post of director of business and strategic development.
She said she was immediately won over by the company’s service offering: “YourVets has developed facilities that would be the envy of most of the profession, with a highly ethical approach to general small animal practice, and I am very proud to be working with such an excellent group of people, both at head office and at practice level.”
Mrs Martin is also in the final stages of studying for an MBA at Warwick Business School – an experience she claims has added “a new dimension” to her role as CEO.
When asked about her main objective for the coming year, she said her chief challenge was to grow the business and maintain its healthy profit margin. Her underlying objective is to make YourVets a “first choice” employer for the profession, and there are already signs that she is fulfilling that ambition through the increasing number of unsolicited applications from vets wishing to work with the company.
