PreviouslyChief Technology Officer, Lantum
VP of Engineering, ComplyAdvantage
CTO, News Chamber
Founded in 2013, Healios is a leading digital healthcare company working to empower individuals and families affected by mental health and neurodevelopmental conditions. Their mission is to help families feel better by bringing exceptional healthcare to anyone, anytime, anywhere.
Healios is pioneering the world’s first digitalisation of NHS Mental Health Trust outpatient services. By blending innovative technology with specialised clinical expertise, they enable children, young people, adults, and their families to receive personalised support from the comfort of their homes.
Healios are reshaping how mental health and neurodevelopmental services are delivered in the UK (and ultimately globally) – and changing the lives of thousands of families for the better.
The technology team was growing at a rapid pace and the existing leadership team decided that it was the right time to work with an experienced, strategic technology leader who had been part of fast-growth, venture-backed executive teams before. The requirement was for someone who could operate with the team at present scale (hands-on tactics required) whilst bringing proven ability to scale the team and manage Engineering managers with teams underneath them. The technology team is expected to grow threefold in the next couple of years meaning that the CTO will need to ensure that there is an engaging engineering brand within the business to attract and retain top talent.
Working closely with the team at Healios and Albion Capital, Erevena were retained to find a Chief Technology Officer.
The executive would provide guidance and leadership as the company grows across the UK and into the US. For the role, we were looking for someone that is excited about the mission of Healios and who could provide some experience of working with technology in regulated sectors.
Erevena introduced Luke Mawbey to Healios for the Chief Technology Officer role. Luke’s early career included leadership roles with the UNDP Africa Adaptation Programme where he spent nearly four years as a Programmer & Information Management Systems Expert. Following the conclusion of these projects, Luke founded a business to enable evidence-based decision making in the humanitarian sector through the analysis of news reporting. He then joined ComplyAdvantage where he was the VP of Engineering for five years, building a team from 7 to 120. Luke joined Healios in the summer of 2021.
These hires were absolute game changers for Healios. The scorecards for each role described a rare blend of attributes, aptitude and attitude. Our answer for both hires came when we looked outside the specific healthcare domain, to cross-fertilise best-in-class functional expertise and scale-up track record, alongside mission alignment. They have both been instrumental in leading Healios into new territory.
Jonnie and the Erevena team supported us in managing two critical searches with analytical rigour, thoughtful tenacity and a desire to go the extra mile.
