Key Group roles
As the business was rapidly growing, Fredrik Rågmark wanted to strengthen the Group with additional functional expertise and decided that this would be best done at the international level (Group Functions supporting all the national businesses). Until then, the different Business Units had operated largely independently, and the only Group Functions supporting Fredrik were Finance and Legal. The first role to be filled was that of Chief Information Officer (CIO), responsible for information technology. In 2001, Anthony Cameron joined Medicover. Shortly thereafter, Richard Sands joined Medicover as Group Strategy Director and Catherine Crevesy took the position of Group HR Director.
To achieve synergies between related businesses, and to ensure that all businesses could receive the necessary senior management time, Fredrik created the Divisional structure. Philippe Ballero became Synevo COO and in 2010, John Stubbington joined Medicover as Medicover Division COO.
