New CEO McDermott brings 16 years’ leadership experience across the healthcare and technology sectors to Reframe, and will focus on continuing transformation of customer experience, as the business diversifies from its core offering of personalised cancer support into multiple healthcare areas.
This growth strategy is underpinned by significant investment in advanced tech development, including artificial intelligence and machine learning, to deliver enhanced and personalised healthcare experiences via Alix, Reframe’s digital health platform.
McDermott’s experience includes holding senior roles at Amazon UK, overseeing operations and the supply chain, as well as at McKesson as CDO, and most recently serving as CEO of cancer data platform Repositive.
In addition, the new appointment held the position of interim chief operations officer for NHS Property Services, supporting the NHS’s fight against Covid-19.
