Agilio Software: Neil Laycock and Andy Sloan
Healthcare technology firm Agilio Software has appointed Neil Laycock as chief executive and Andy Sloan as dental managing director.
Agilio Software provides technology in the primary care, dental, and hospital sectors, offering compliance, HR, and e-learning software solutions to more than 70,000 dental professionals in the UK and 4,400 GP practices in England.
Laycock joined Agilio in 2020 as chief operating officer, arriving with more than 15 years of experience in senior roles across the healthcare and technology sectors. His previous roles included managing director of EMIS Health and managing director of Servelec’s community, mental health, and acute business.
At Agilio, Laycock has managed and overseen the acquisition and integration of the dental software firms Code and Isopharm, Myhrtoolkit, and primary care software providers Clarity Informatics and My Locum Manager.
Laycock said: “Since joining the business back in 2020, I have been so impressed by our team and how they’ve come together to navigate Agilio through this period of exceptional growth. I am honoured to be leading this team into the next phase of Agilio Software, with our ambition to expand our reach and expertise into new healthcare sectors and regions to help answer the needs of users and ensure they have the time to focus on the things that matter most.”
Sloan joins in December and has more than 15 years’ senior leadership experience across the dental industry both on the supply side as well as within corporate groups. He was previously business development director for Portman Dental Care, overseeing more than 100 practice acquisitions, and before that was director of business solutions across Europe at Henry Schein.
Sloan said: “It is very exciting to be joining Agilio Software at this stage and become part of the company’s ambitious plan to transform the way that dental practices operate through utilising our software and services. Having worked in the industry for over a decade, I have had first-hand insight and experience of the key challenges that both, dental groups, and independent practices are facing when running their businesses. With Agilio’s wide range of software solutions and expertise I am looking forward to helping the industry get to improved operational efficiency, ensuring regulatory compliance, and placing professional development at the heart of their businesses.”
Dr Sati Sian, chairman of Agilio Software added: “Over the past two years, Neil has played a crucial part in our rapid growth, and we are delighted that he will be leading the business’s continued expansion. Andy brings huge knowledge and experience of the dental sector to Agilio, and we are very delighted to have him join our senior leadership group. Our team is the main reason for our rapid growth so far, and these appointments strengthen an already strong team at Agilio. We are excited to be working with this team and their expertise to meet the needs of our users quickly and effectively, and to expand to new sectors.”
