Induction Healthcare Group PLC, a leading healthcare technology company helping streamline the delivery of care, is pleased to announce the appointment of Leslie-Ann Reed to the Board as Non-Executive Director with effect from 19 July 2019.


Leslie-Ann adds breadth and depth to the Board as the Group continues to establish a strong and engaged user base and pursue its strategy to acquire new and complementary modules for the Induction Switch app.


Leslie-Ann is a chartered accountant with a diverse background and extensive international experience, having served in both executive and non-executive roles in publicly listed media and professional services companies.

In addition, she is a Non-Executive Director at Bloomsbury Publishing plc, where she is a member of the Audit and Remuneration Committees.  Previously, Leslie-Ann was a Non-Executive Director of the German listed company ZEAL Networks SE where she was Vice Chair of the Supervisory Board and Chaired the Audit Committee.

From 2010 to 2012 she was Chief Financial Officer of the global, online B2B auctioneer Go Industry Dove Bid plc, which operated in 20 countries, where she focused on driving operating efficiencies, enhancing operating margins, improving cashflow and negotiating new banking facilities. She led the successful sale of the business in 2012. Between 2007 and 2010 Leslie-Ann was an adviser to Marwyn Investment Management, overseeing the strategy to acquire professional training, research, data and information businesses. Prior to that, she served as Chief Financial Officer of global commodities and economic research media group Metal Bulletin plc helping to lead its transition from printed products to an online data and news service. She played an important role in driving strong organic and acquisitive growth and in materially improving shareholder value, which ultimately led to its acquisition by Euromoney Institutional Investor PLC.
