Dan Sherry joins the York-based group, VetPartners, after 10 years at Axiom, where he was business director and lead them through a period of rapid growth in small animal diagnostics and latterly the introduction of farm animal and equine diagnostics.
Dan will work closely with all businesses to develop and expand their services across the UK and Europe.
“One of the advantages of a larger veterinary group is that we have a huge amount of expertise and resources we can share to provide a great service for practices and the best possible treatment for patients,” he said. “We will be looking at how we can grow their market share and the services they offer, and how we make best use of shared resources and bring all our combined knowledge together.
“The enthusiasm and passion our laboratories have is incredible after growing businesses independently and now taking them to the next level as part of VetPartners.”
Before joining Axiom, Dan was an officer in the Army and served in the UK, Germany, Cyprus and Iraq, before leaving to work in recruitment for FTSE 250 business Michael Page.
His interest in the veterinary sector started when he met his wife Kate, a clinical pathologist.
