Intelligent Health Ltd announces today that it has appointed a new Chair to join the Board of Directors and to lead the Company’s growth.

Intelligent Health Ltd, the Company which operates nationwide programmes throughout the UK to reduce inactivity and to improve health, has appointed Kevin McDonnell as its new Chair.

Kevin has extensive experience running global operations in varied business environments with a focus on the healthcare and technology sector. He has held senior roles with Capita plc, was Managing Director at AIM listed EMIS Group plc and led the EMIS Care and EMIS Health Specialist businesses. Prior to EMIS Group, Kevin was Managing Director of Digital Healthcare (UK & US), building the business from early stage to market leader, before leading the sale to EMIS Group plc. In addition, Kevin serves as non-executive chair for several innovative, early-stage healthcare technology companies.

Intelligent Health, with revenues of £2m and forecasting growth in excess of £3m in the year to June 2022, has now attracted approaching 1.3m participants to its Beat the Street games, operated with councils, health authorities and commercial organisations as a fun way for individuals to get exercise and to reduce inactivity.

The recruitment process has been led by Grahame Sewell who has been acting Chair since the retirement of Mark Lund one year ago, and Dr William Bird, CEO. Grahame Sewell will continue on the Board as Senior Independent Director.

Dr Bird stated: “As we broaden the breadth and depth of our core programme, Beat the Street, we are adding depth to our management team and to the Board of Directors. We welcome Kevin’s appointment to the Board and the executive team look forward to working with him to drive growth and to develop new digital solutions to work alongside our successful Beat the Street programme.

Kevin McDonnell added: “Notwithstanding Intelligent Health’s strong fundamentals, it is the company’s ongoing innovation, geographic expansion ambitions and talented team that attracted me to the business. I am delighted to join Intelligent Health as their new Chair and to play an important part in growing the business, to drive new solutions and to help the company build revenues in new sectors and internationally”.
