“There is an impressive foundation to build on at Medisure Labs. I’ve visited and led many labs over the last two decades. I can confirm that Medisure Labs is one of the cleanest and most well-designed state-of-the-art facilities that I have ever seen. It sits at a prime location in the heart of the Dallas medical district. Coupled with MediSure’s at-home testing solutions, I’m incredibly excited to roll out unique health solutions for the US market that leverage both our in-house diagnostics and medical device capabilities. For these reasons, I have accepted the challenge to lead the lab, immediately commence sales efforts to deliver on its revenue potential and join a team that can offer convenient integrated healthcare solutions to the U.S.”
