MyHealthChecked plc (AIM: MHC), the consumer home-testing healthcare company, announces that Peter Dines, Non-executive Director, has today stepped down from the Board. Peter is Chief Operating Officer at Mercia Asset Management PLC1 ("Mercia") and is standing down to focus on other portfolio companies.
The Directorate change follows on from the successful roll-out of a new corporate strategy for growth in 2021 and beyond, which has seen MyHealthChecked focus on bringing further simple, reliable, affordable health tests to market.
Peter Dines commented: "Having been associated with the Company prior to the public listing and living through the evolution of the senior management team in recent years, I am delighted that under Penny's leadership the company is now well placed to execute its new strategy and deliver further growth. The news today announcing the agreement with Boots is a natural time to step down in order to focus on other portfolio activities and I wish the company continued success for the future."
Adam Reynolds, Non-executive Chairman of MyHealthChecked, said: "We are incredibly grateful for the support provided by Peter and we have benefitted enormously from his experience of commercialising and scaling exciting medtech companies. We continue to benefit from the support of Mercia, as our largest shareholder, including their participation in our most recent fundraising which will fuel the next exciting stage of our growth and evolution as we seek to become the UK's leading business-to-consumer testing business."
