Concepta shores up management strength as part of China strategy

By Josh White

Date: Friday 16 Feb 2018

LONDON (ShareCast) - (ShareCast News) - Healthcare technology company Concepta announced the appointment of David Darrock, chief operating officer of the Concepta group, as a director of Concepta Diagnostics on Friday.
The AIM-traded firm said Darrock joined Concepta in October last year as site director for its Doncaster operation.

He brought "significant" experience managing Chinese supply chains, so in addition to managing its manufacturing site in Doncaster, Darrock would also be heading the supply chain management process to ensure volume requirements were met as the company scaled its operations.

Alongside Darrock's appointment, and to strengthen the China team, the company said Michelle Yao had been appointed as China general manager, and will be reporting to UK-based head of China Zhang Zi Gang.

Concepta said Yan previously worked for Alere in China as marketing manager, and recently ran her own company in the medical diagnostic device sector.

She would lead the China operational team and work with distributors, logistics and marketing operations to support the market penetration of the MyLotus products in China.

"On behalf of the board, I am delighted to announce these two senior appointments," said Concepta CEO Erik Henau.

"David joined us in October last year and in a short period, he has made an invaluable contribution to the advancement of our operations from small batch laboratory-based production to industrial manufacturing scale."

Henau said Darrock had played a pivotal role in streamlining the supply chain, to ensure the effective delivery of the company's products to our customers, adding that the board was "delighted" to welcome him to the board of Concepta Diagnostics.

"Additionally, Michelle's experience and market knowledge will not only be essential in ensuring an effective launch of myLotus in China to augment market awareness, but also in maintaining the ongoing marketing operations thereafter.

"We are thrilled that Michelle has joined Concepta and we are very much looking forward to working alongside her."
