NetScientific PLC (LON:NSCI), the backer of fledgling healthcare companies, said digital health company Wanda has a new chief executive officer.
Foad Dabiri, who has been Wanda’s chief technology officer since March 2014, will be taking over from Steve Curd as chief executive officer (CEO) with immediate effect.
Curd had been Wanda’s CEO since September 2015.
Dabiri will take the company through its commercialisation stage, said NetScientific.
"Foad's unique understanding of the nexus between predictive analytics, data and patient need, make him the best person to lead Wanda at this critical juncture as it moves into its commercialisation phase,” said François Martelet, who is CEO of NetScientific and chairman of Wanda.
San Francisco-based Wanda is one of NetScientific’s portfolio companies.
It is dedicated to advancing the effectiveness and efficiency of medicine by using machine learning in place of conventional technologies and by enabling clinicians to make more informed care decisions.
