Nucleus hires managing director

Nucleus has bolstered its senior management team with the appointment of John McNeil as managing director.

McNeil will form part of a five-strong executive management team, which reports directly to chief executive and founder David Ferguson (pictured).

Prior to Nucleus, McNeil worked at OPTOS plc, a retinal imaging company, where he had held a number of roles at since joining in 2005. He was involved in the company’s initial public offering, which raised £50 million in primary and secondary proceeds, and admission to trading on the main market of the London Stock Exchange in February 2006.

McNeil has been company secretary to OPTOS plc since 2008.

Ferguson says: “It gives me great pleasure to confirm the expansion of the senior management team with someone of John’s calibre, which is aligned to support our continued growth. He has a wealth of experience of working at forward-thinking organisations in a range of regulated industries and sectors, which I believe will bring tremendous benefits to the business as we continue to build on the huge success we have experienced to date.”
