Axiom Veterinary Laboratories has appointed Caron Lewis-Timmins as laboratories sales manager.
Before joining Axiom in 2011 as business development manager, Mrs Lewis-Timmins worked in a variety of sales and business development roles at insurer Petplan.
She said: “I was initially attracted to join Axiom because, after many years with one organisation, I wanted a fresh challenge in a different part of the veterinary world to help me to grow my experience and sales skills.
“Since then, I’ve really enjoyed the diagnostics environment and building relationships with our customers. In my new role, I will support my team by giving them the tools they need to show practices the powerful business case offered by investing in in-practice analysers. I will also work to continue to grow our referral service. My goal is to ensure our referral customers regard us as an extension of their own diagnostic service to their clients.”
Managing Director Martyn Carpenter added: “Our practice analyser business has grown significantly over the past year and, as practices increasingly realise the benefits to them and their clients from bringing this service in-house, we are expecting a busy 2015.
“Caron has exceptional people skills so brings out the best in her team. She has also demonstrated her business development skills time after time and will lead by example. We are delighted to promote her into this newly created role.”
Axiom Veterinary Laboratories is based in Newton Abbot in Devon and has a satellite lab in Vauxhall, London. It has offered a clinical pathology service to the veterinary industry for more than 25 years.
