Care software provider Servelec has appointed a new CEO.

Ian Crichton will join the Sheffield-based business on 10th June from Serco, where he held the position of MD of its UK health business.

In the course of an international career spanning 30 years, Crichton has worked in a variety of private and public sector roles, including that of chief executive at NHS National Services Scotland.

He will work closely with the existing Servelec leadership team, including MDs Neil Laycock and Richard Betts, with the aim of providing top-quality customer service delivery to its healthcare and local government customers.

The appointment follows Alan Stubbs’ planned transition from CEO to a non-executive director role.

“I would like to welcome Ian Crichton to Servelec, and I look forward to working with him to further drive the growth and success of the company,” said chairman Neville Davis.

“Ian is an outstanding CEO with a comprehensive range of experience which is a great fit for our business.

“I am sure this will mark the start of a great new chapter in the company’s development.”
