Liva Healthcare grows team with five new hires to support 2020 plans

Kristoffer From, CEO of Liva Healthcare

To support our ambitious 2020 growth plans, I am pleased to share we have expanded our team with five executive hires across both the UK and Denmark office. This will allow us to scale up with existing clients, expand further geographically and continue our technological innovation.

The UK office

In our UK offices, Memuna Adam and Mark Vizard join us as digital partnership directors. Memuna has held senior implementation positions at NHS England, with Mark Vizard previously leading partnerships with healthcare intelligence company, Intercept IP. Both will support our integration with healthcare bodies, pushing new boundaries for partnerships.

Anna Cummings also joins our team as a coaching and nutritional development manager. A registered nutritionist, Anna has over ten years of healthcare experience, coaching and advising organisations on best practice and scientific excellence. Anna will be responsible for the coaching, nutritional advice and user experience of the programme in partnership with our network of coaches.

The Denmark office

In HQ, the technical team grows with the hiring of former Novo Nordisk data manager Julie Sainmont as data analyst and Ole Jensen as frontend developer.

With a background as an engineer in bioinformatics and a PhD in mathematical modeling, supplemented by ten years of experience at Novo Nordisk, Julie will be strengthening our intelligent use of data for upcoming data science projects.
Olen Jensen will be developing our web-based platform, improving usability, quality, and maturity. Jensen has more than ten years of experience working with the latest technologies in web development.

With these new additions to our team, we aim to widen our global presence by maintaining a world class technical programme.

Storming into 2020

As we move into the new decade, our focus continues to be about delivering the best outcomes for patients in partnership with private insurance, pharma and public healthcare bodies. We’re confident the expertise that Anna, Julie, Ole, Mark and Memuna bring to the table will ensure we outdo our goals for the next year.
