British health technology company Visionable has announced two new senior appointments to its team as it pushes forward with its ongoing growth.
The business, which redesigns healthcare through a digital collaboration platform which enables clinicians to deliver better patient outcomes, has appointed Christèle Brouste as Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and Antony Martin as Chief Technology Officer (CTO), effective immediately.
The expansion of the company’s executive leadership team follows Visionable’s rapid growth in 2020, which saw £17million of investment that the company raised in Series A and Series A1 funding rounds. Visionable has appointed Christèle and Antony to lead further expansion and innovation, and draw on their expertise to help drive growth in new markets and territories.
Previously Group Director of Finance at Babylon Health, Christèle knows the healthcare sector well. She built and led the financial organisation of the business to ensure strategic, commercial and operational goals were met. Her wealth of experience includes senior roles at both Apple and Cisco, working closely with leadership teams to support business investment and development plans.
Christèle will be responsible for steering the company through its Series B financing; carving out Visionable’s path for growth; building new relationships; and driving the business towards new horizons in different territories and sectors. She will work closely with the rest of the leadership team to plan for the future, guiding optimum investment.
Antony joins Visionable as Chief Technology Officer to help the business meet the continued demand seen over the past year. Visionable will continue to work with previous CTO Rachel Dunscombe in an advisory capacity. Antony will be designing the technological direction for Visionable, driving the company’s roadmap. He will oversee the development and dissemination of technology for clients to help propel business objectives. Antony will also work on expanding the company’s existing portfolio of products and manage the roll out of Visionable’s partnerships.
Antony has over 25 years of experience in the telecommunications industry and over 20 years working in US-based
companies, having held senior technology roles at video communications company Vidyo and cloud solutions provider Dialogic. His expertise encompasses the delivery of award-winning media processing and video conferencing solutions, servicing millions of users globally, as well as building high-performing, geographically dispersed teams at scale.
CEO and co-founder of Visionable, Alan Lowe, says: “Christèle and Antony’s experience will be invaluable to Visionable as we enter an exciting next chapter in our growth. Both have a proven ability to grow companies, teams and technologies at a rapid pace which will help us take our video collaboration platform to the next level.
“I have no doubt that they will contribute both personally and professionally as Visionable advances its range of products and services and I look forward to working closely with them and the rest of the leadership team to improve access to healthcare for all.”
Commenting on her appointment, Christèle says: “I wouldn’t have moved positions for any other company. Visionable and the inspiring co-founders, Alan Lowe and Lord Victor Adebowale, are making such a huge impact on the healthcare sector and they have a vision I can fully embrace and support. This role allows me to utilise my experience in driving growth and laying the right foundations for making a tangible difference to healthcare. Visionable is a truly unique company that I’m very excited to be a part of.”
Speaking about his new position, Antony adds: “Visionable is a dynamic company with a clear vision, at an exciting stage in its growth trajectory. I am looking forward to working with the team on the opportunities and challenges ahead and to applying my experience in video technology to develop Visionable’s capability even further for the benefit of healthcare providers and patients.”
