Hello Health Group , a leading Digital Health company in Asia focusing on the development of health and wellness information platforms and services in local languages for consumers and patients, is excited to announce the appointment of John Davison as Vice-Chairman, according to a company statement.

John Davison, a graduate of Cambridge University and Harvard Business School, has had an illustrious 30-year career spanning all six continents of the world, mainly in the emerging markets of Asia, Middle East, Africa & Latin America.

John is the recently retired  CEO of Zuellig Pharma, Asia’s leading healthcare distribution and services group. He led a major turnaround over the past 6 years, re-energising the core distribution business, creating two new fast-growth divisions and driving the full digital transformation of the company.

Prior to this, he orchestrated turnarounds and delivered transformational growth in leading consumer products companies Danone (Dairy), Royal Numico (Infant/Clinical Nutrition) and Diageo (Drinks). He also enjoyed successful stints at B2B supply chain technology start-up eSkye Solutions, leading management consulting firm McKinsey and top European business school INSEAD.

James Miles-Lambert, CEO, Hello Health Group said “I have known John for many years and have been impressed by his understanding of the healthcare industry and his ability to drive transformative growth. As when we first started the business, I remain as energised as ever by our mission to lead Asia in the democratization of healthcare, to become leaders in the creation of health and wellness knowledge and services that empower millions of people to make more informed decisions so they can live healthier and happier lives. We have been experiencing explosive growth during the COVID-19 pandemic. We remain totally focused on delivering value to all stakeholders in order to drive sustainable business growth and I am delighted to have John join us at this exciting time in our journey.”

Charles Toomey, Chairman of Hello Health Group added “John and I enjoyed a friendly rivalry in our prior roles at Zuellig Pharma and DKSH respectively. I am  very excited now to welcome John to our team  and indeed to be on the same team this time. John brings a wealth of experience, and it’s  indicative of our initial success and very bright future that he has chosen to join forces with us, further adding to our team of industry heavyweights including  Graeme Read, previously President McCann Health APAC as Chief Strategy Officer and Hugo Saavedra, previously VP & Regional GM Latin America Mundipharma, as Chief Commercial Officer. John will work closely with James, Graeme, Hugo and myself to drive the evolution of our commercial and strategic capabilities. We are really ambitious, commited and passionate about our mission, and our ambition is clear, to establish market leadership with our platforms and our commercial proposition, and the bolstering of our leadership is key to achieving that.”

John Davison said “I have come from an organisation that adds value to clients, consumers and patients by making healthcare more accessible and I see that Hello Health Group is leading the digital Health Tech space in the same way. Hello Health’s ability to scale regionally quickly and cost effectively is driven by its mission-driven culture to make a difference. With most players currently limited to a single market, Hello Health Group has built a strong regional network to the benefit of its audience and clients. I am looking forward to helping the team capitalise on this major advantage.”
