Kessel takes chair at Head Medical

Head Medical, the Edinburgh-based recruitment specialist, has appointed Olivia Kessel as chairman.

Dr Kessel joins the organisation with a career spanning two decades in healthcare, focusing on patient empowerment and creating patient-centric solutions.

She has worked across various geographies and cultures, from the medical ward and leading biopharmaceutical companies to founding a not-for-profit organisation in Swaziland.

In 2015, she launched the UK division of AbbVie Care, recruiting 45 individuals to implement a holistic and tailored approach to patient care that goes beyond prescribed medication.

In the last year, Dr Kessel founded Mwanzo, a consultancy which works with a range of organisations in the healthcare sector to advise on the development and implementation of patient empowerment strategies.

Head Medical is part of The Taranata Group, a group of four companies owned by investor Paul Atkinson, comprising Head Resourcing, Change Recruitment, Head Medical and Atkinson MacLeod.
