Westfield Health, the Sheffield-based corporate health and wellbeing solutions provider, has appoint a new Chief as it aims to become a market leader.

David Capper assumes the permanent role (subject to regulatory approval) following a six-week period as interim CEO, in the wake of the retirement of Jill Davies back in May 2018.

The company said that Capper, who joined as Commercial Director in 2015, has been “integral” to driving its new brand proposition and strategy.

Since the acquisition of Working Health in December 2017, Westfield Health has undergone a period of transformative change, implementing its new broader proposition with a vision to helping people to improve their quality of life.

It said that Capper was “instrumental” in securing a pioneering partnership with the Advanced Wellbeing Research Centre (the AWRC), acknowledged as the most advanced wellbeing and physical activity research centre in the world.

“David’s appointment is a huge vote of confidence by the Board in our strategy to become a go-to health and wellbeing provider of choice,” said Chairman Graham Moore.

“In David we have a leader who is passionate about our vision and strategy, who understands the market we operate in and has a network of contacts, both nationally and internationally to continue our journey of becoming a world class health and wellbeing company.”
