International growth ambitions lead to appointment of managing director and commercial and performance director
Healthcare infrastructure specialist, Archus, has strengthened its leadership team with the appointment of Shane Dineen as managing director and Victoria Head as commercial and performance director.
In addition, Richard Darch will now take the role of executive chairman and will lead the growth of international markets.
The changes underpin a new five-year strategy for the firm, which has ambitions to grow its healthcare consulting services, both in the UK and into new international territories, including Ireland, Canada, and Australia.
Dineen has been a founding member of Archus since its formation in 2017, where he has overseen the growth of the South West region along with leadership of the company’s strategic sales and people functions.
In his newly-appointed role he will lead the business in the delivery of its future strategy.
He said: “Healthcare continues to be a vital part of human society, but it is becoming increasingly complex to deliver.
“As Archus has grown, so has our ability to support our partners in health systems to be innovative and creative in pursuit of a fit-for-purpose healthcare provision for future generations.”
Head joined Archus in 2019 as head of programme and project management, bringing a proven track record in the delivery of complex, multi-million-pound projects.
As director of commercial and performance, she will lead the ongoing improvement and integration of all service areas to ensure consistency, innovation, sustainability, and quality across the firm’s growing number of UK, Irish, and international offices.
Commenting on the appointment, Dineen said: “Victoria is a seasoned professional in infrastructure development and healthcare where she is recognised as leading some of the most-successful schemes across her 20-year career.
“Since joining in 2021, she has been a fantastic and valued addition to Archus and her appointment will make a significant contribution to our business, valued team members, partners, and clients.”
