Medicash, cash plan provider, has appointed two new non-executive directors to its board.
Jonathan Brown and Jean Ellis assume the roles in a year in which Medicash marks its 150th anniversary since it was originally founded in Liverpool.
Medicash was awarded the Freedom of the City of Liverpool in 2018 for its longstanding contribution to healthcare and commitment to charitable giving.
Ellis, who has 30 years of experience in independent accountancy and advice, is currently a corporate and audit partner at DSG Chartered Accountants, specialising in not-for-profit and third sector audit clients. She is also trustee for two local charities, a member of the Finance Committee at Liverpool Chamber of Commerce and a board member at Liverpool Hope University.
Brown joins with over 30 years of experience as a corporate lawyer. Operating out of Hill Dickinson’s Liverpool office, he specialises in all forms of the mergers and acquisitions market, including IPOs, development capital and joint ventures.
Brown currently sits on the boards of Derwent Lodge Estates, Stobart Group and Stobart Air, whilst also being the Chair of Hill Dickinson LLP and Praetura Group, a financial services investment and lending business. During his career Brown has helped transact the sale of Swinton Insurance N.I. to Abbey Insurance Ltd and acted for Stobart Group in the acquisitions of many businesses including James Irlam & Sons Ltd and London Southend Airport Company Ltd.
Sue Weir, chief executive of Medicash said: “We are delighted to welcome Jean and Jonathan to our board to help lead the next stage of our development. They have extensive commercial experience, and I am sure they will bring new ideas which will benefit both our customers and the wider team. They are a great addition to the Medicash board.”
