Dr Gavin McCoubrey brings with him over 23 years of veterinary industry and worldwide animal welfare experience.

Following 2 years as Clinical Director for the RSPCA, he founded his first clinic aged 29. He conceived the business and brand. He dealt with location, procurement, design and project managed the renovations of the initial and subsequent premises.

Initially himself and one other member of staff he helped grow the company to a four centre practice, with over 40 employees and a multi-million-pound turnover. He was involved, on a daily basis with Marketing, Human Resources, and all internal and external contract negotiations, aided by obtaining his certificate in Veterinary Business Management from the University of Liverpool.

In 2017 he personally negotiated the sale of the company with all the main corporates tabling offers. These discussions furthered his appetite for business.

Due to the multidisciplinary nature of the veterinary industry, he felt that studying for an MBA would provide synergy with his veterinary knowledge, enabling an understanding of all the key elements needed to make any veterinary business successful. As such he applied and was accepted to study for an international MBA at Queens University Belfast, a member of the Russell Group of Universities.
