We are pleased to announce that Amer Yazbek will be taking up the position of Chief Financial Officer (CFO) at EIT Health. Amer joined EIT Health in November 2021 as our Finance Director, and in that short time has played a key role in helping us to shape our financial strategy.
As we launch our new strategy, Amer will bring a strong finance representation to our Strategic Management Team, in his new role as CFO. Amer brings experience to this role, having been a CFO in his previous organisation, Henry Schein, where he worked in the Medical Business Unit, working across Europe. Prior to this Amer led the Business Internal Audit Team at Swarovski and worked as an External Auditor for Ernst and Young. Amer also holds a Master’s in Finance from the University of Lyon.
Jean-Marc Bourez, Interim CEO said: “I am delighted to welcome Amer to our Strategic Management Team. I already know he brings great experience and will be a strong addition to the team, so I look forward to working with him more closely. He joins the SMT at an important time as we launch our new strategy to take us to 2027. A strategy which strives to deliver innovation and change.”
Commenting on his new appointment Amer Yazbek said: “I am honoured to have been asked to take on the additional responsibility of being CFO at EIT Health. Although still relatively new to the organisation I recognise it is an exciting time to be able to join the Senior Management Team and play a key role in achieving our organisational goals and ambitions.”
Amer will be taking up the position of Chief Financial Officer with immediate effect, and will be reporting to Jean-Marc Bourez, Interim CEO.
