Welsh life sciences company expands team after raising investment

Welsh life sciences company Bond Digital Health is expanding its team after securing more than a quarter of a million pounds in investment.

Based at the Life Sciences Hub in Cardiff, the company has hired Edryd Sharp as head of product design and Phil Cooley as quality assurance manager.

These appointments follow a year of growth for the company. At the start of 2018, Bond Digital Health raised a private equity investment of £200,000 to grow its product offering and team. It was also awarded with £75,000 for various projects.

Dave Taylor, founder and chief operating officer of Bond Digital Health, said: “This has been an incredible year for Bond Digital Health, with new commercial customers, exciting new partnerships, the launch of several innovative projects and of course record private investment.

“All of this activity means we need to add new skills and expertise to the business and in Edryd and Phil we have two exceptional new team members.

“Their knowledge and experience will be vital as we continue to grow and we are confident they will help take Bond Digital Health to the next level.”

Cardiff Metropolitan University graduate Edryd Sharp has spent over fifteen years working in the digital sector, and in his new position, he’ll be responsible tor leading the creative development process.

Mr Sharp said: “Bond is an ambitious company that is out to make a name for itself in the digital health market. I’m looking forward to helping it achieve its goals.”

Meanwhile, Phil Cooley – a science graduate from Cardiff University – has 11 years of experience career working in quality control and analysis for healthcare organisations. As quality assurance manager, he’ll plan and implement a quality management system.

Mr Cooley said: “It’s clear to me that with its innovative technology and talented team Bond has huge potential. I can’t wait to get started.”
