Ann is an international executive with a proven track record in scaling businesses and leading finance and business operations. Prior to joining ProtonDx, she held various leadership positions at KPMG and NBCUniversal. Her intrapreneurial roles at NBCU ‑ including setting up a new operation in China and growing it to 70‑strong; and growing a new division from 20 to 200 people across 10 countries ‑ set her on a path to the start‑up world. After a sabbatical advising start‑ups, social enterprises, and charities, Ann joined an R&D‑led agri‑food tech start‑up, with which she is still involved as a NED. She is excited about the opportunity to combine world‑class research, the Imperial network, and strong business acumen to bring fast, accurate, affordable diagnostics to the market.
