Hallmarq Veterinary Imaging announces new CEO

Hallmarq Veterinary Imaging has announced the appointment of Mick Crosthwaite as Chief Executive Officer. Mick will drive the next ambitious phase of business growth, building on Hallmarq’s strong history of delivering high- quality innovation. The company recently celebrated a third Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the Innovation Category to add to their list of accolades and will continue their work to increase accessibility of advanced technology to a wider veterinary audience internationally.

Mick has a proven track record of achieving business growth for technology businesses. Most recently, he was Exec Chair for HAS Technology Group, which provides technology solutions for health and social care providers across the UK, USA, Australia, and New Zealand. Under his leadership, the company launched several award-winning solutions including services that combine predictive analytics modelling with innovative wearable technology to identify risks, so enabling people to remain independent within their own homes for longer.

Garret Turley, Partner at August Equity and Investor Director at Hallmarq says: ‘Hallmarq is delighted to welcome Mick to take the helm for this exciting new phase of growth, drawing on his unique skill set and insight. Our team is constantly innovating, and we have some cutting-edge developments that will be launched to the market under Mick’s leadership.’

Speaking about his vision for the company, Mick says: ‘I am passionate about building great businesses and am looking forward to working with the team at Hallmarq to deliver our company vision for the future of veterinary care. The aim of reaching more veterinary teams, and ultimately pets, with better diagnostic tools, is extremely important to me and fits well with my background of improving outcomes in human health and social care.’

Mick’s goal-oriented approach is also evidenced through his expeditions away from the workplace, having crossed the Atlantic Ocean in an open-topped Rigid Inflatable Boat and climbed on Everest.

Mick adds: ‘My passion for business is the same as my passion for adventure – it’s all about working with a team of highly motivated people to achieve a defined goal.’

Mick is taking over the helm from Jos Belgrave, who will remain in a very active role as a non-executive board member and will support this transition.

Iain Ferguson, Chairman at Hallmarq adds: ‘The team at Hallmarq thank Jos for his brilliant leadership for the past 11 years. We are looking forward to continuing to work closely together in his new role on our board.’
