Healthcare Brands International

Healthcare Brands International (HBI) was launched in October 2006. Its mission is to develop an international OTC healthcare business based on acquiring innovative products, with clinically-proven efficacy, that have the potential to be exploited in markets around the world. Talentmark was asked to find a Chairman and Non-Executive Director with a pedigree in Consumer Medicines to support the development of a newly created international business.

The high calibre and reputation of Barry Clare, ex-chairman of BHI and Simon Poulsford, GSK , together with the serial entrepreneur, founder and CEO, Jim Phillips, was largely responsible for the company negotiating a £500m plus backing from a major private equity house.
