Beeston has been chairman of public and private companies, including developer and homebuilder Taylor Wimpey, Domestic and General, a provider of extended warranty services, and Partnerships in Care, a specialist provider of mental health services. He was previously chairman of Serco Group until 2010 during a 25-year career with the company, during which he held the roles of chief executive and chief financial officer.

Kevin’s unparalleled experience across some of the UK’s leading public and private companies will be an enormous asset as we seek to deliver on our plans for the future, helping more patients to get access to the care they need, and supporting clinicians to build the careers they want.”

Beeston said: “My dentist and DD are outstanding businesses with strong leadership teams, proven track records, and clear plans for the future. I look forward to supporting both companies in this exciting next stage of their growth.”
