Alliance Healthcare announced yesterday that Marie Evans, its current commercial and category director, has taken over as managing director.
Ms Evans replaces Julian Mount, who has decided to step down after five years at the head of the wholesaler but will stay on as an executive advisor as part of a “planned transition”.
She will report to senior vice president Juan Gerra, who commented: “The last 18 months have 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.
“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.
“I thank Julian for his commitment and contribution and wish him well.”
