O2 has appointed Nikki Flanders as the new MD for its O2 Health division.
Flanders replaces Keith Nurcombe, who the operator said was pursuing other opportunities outside of the company. Flanders was most recently responsible for O2's 4G strategy and developing its UK plans for a 2013 rollout of next generation services. She previously worked for Centrica, WH Smith and Marks & Spencer.
O2 Health launched three years ago and is part of Telefónica Digital. It aims to provide mobile health products for the health and social care sectors.
Flanders (pictured) said: 'I’m delighted to be joining O2 Health and build on the fantastic work to date. I passionately believe we can make a huge difference to people’s health and care while supporting clinicians and carers, through technology innovation. I have first-hand experience of how technology can empower people with health conditions and those who care for them – and have a vision for O2 Health that reflects this.'
Martin Harriman, head of Telefónica Digital UK said: 'We’re very pleased to welcome Nikki to O2 Health and look forward to working with her as she harnesses the company’s technology, know-how, scale and drive to put people at the heart of the care they receive.'
