“We approached Tony Bowden, a partner in IT Health Partners, to help drive Helicon Health’s business development strategy in 2014, at a formative time in the Company’s growth. This strategy has proved very successful leading to new customers across the UK, and a very healthy sales pipeline. During the process Tony was able to draw on the help of others in IT Health Partners, for example in the area of interoperability. We are very impressed with Tony’s experience and enthusiasm, and in May 2015 he was appointed as CEO.” Helicon website
