Today's City Moves cover medical devices, travel and property. Take a look at these movers and shakers:
Medical device firm Atlantic Therapeutics, focused on treating conditions of the pelvic floor and surrounding tissues, has appointed Gordie Nye as its chairman. After working with Gillette and Reebok, Gordie forged his career as a chief executive and director of venture and private equity-backed medical device start-ups and buyouts. Of particular note are A-Company Orthodontics, Critikon and Zeltiq Aesthetics, all of which saw excellent returns for investors. Gordie is currently chief exec of R2 Dermatology, a startup that is set to commercialise a Harvard University technology – familiar territory for Gordie who did the same at Zeltiq, the maker of CoolSculpting, arguably the most valuable device company in the Aesthetics industry.
Travel group Thomas Cook has appointed Jurgen Schreiber and Paul Edgecliffe-Johnson as non-executive directors. Jurgen brings a breadth of international experience across retail and consumer goods including chief executive roles in both a publicly-listed company and large private companies. His experience includes customer-facing businesses across Europe, Asia, Africa and North America. Jurgen is currently the chairman of the advisory board of Aldo Group, non-executive director with the Lidl & Schwarz Group and deputy chairman of Edcon. Paul is currently chief financial officer of Intercontinental Hotels Group (IHG) and brings his deep experience of the global hotel industry to the board. During a 13-year career at IHG, Paul has served in a number of senior financial roles and acted as interim CEO of its former Europe, Middle East and Africa region.
Adam Day has joined Easyproperty as head of operations, effective immediately. He was previously the founder of rival online estate agency, Hatched, which was acquired by Connells. Day will be responsible for establishing the new systems and procedures which will transform Easyproperty into a business-to-business-to-consumer operator, enabling the convergence of high street agency with online sales and lettings. Easyproperty is licensing its brand and technology to independent estate agents who belong to The Guild of Property Professionals or Fine & Country, both of which are part of GPEA. Adam launched Hatched in 2006, which was the second online agency to emerge in the UK. Connells subsequently acquired the business in November 2015. Prior to Hatched, Adam was with Country Properties for almost nine years in various roles, the last being a marketing manager position.
