Alliance Healthcare, the UK’s largest pharmaceutical wholesaler, announced today (December 7) the appointment of Marie Evans as its new managing director.
Evans, who is the current commercial and category director of the firm, will report to Juan Guerra, Alliance Healthcare’s senior vice president and managing director of International Wholesale.
Commenting on the new appointment, Guerra said: “The last 18 months has shown just how important wholesale and distribution is to the NHS and I am so excited to welcome Marie to her new position at this critical time.
“Her experience and leadership will be key as we continue to evolve our services in response to the changing needs of pharmacy, the health service, and industry.”
As the new MD, Evans succeeds Julian Mount, who has made the decision to leave after being in charge for five years.
Mount will continue as an executive advisor, supporting Evans in her role.
Guerra said: “During Julian’s time in charge, Alliance Healthcare has continued its growth as a significant provider of valued services to the NHS and UK healthcare industry, along the way he has transformed our relations with upstream and downstream customers and the UK government and introduced Alliance Healthcare’s new digital platform.”
