The new year has brought some changes in leadership at Frank Taylor & Associates, with Oliver Acton taking over as Managing Director. Oliver has been Creative Director of FTA Media since January 2018, a role he will continue to perform alongside his new responsibilities. More recently Oliver has had greater involvement in strategic projects in order to prepare for the transition to his new role. Lis Hughes will remain in the business to ensure a smooth handover and continue to drive the next-generation strategy. “Oliver is a logical successor and a natural leader”, commented Lis. “He will help strengthen our position as the leading expert in the selling and buying of dental practices in the UK”.
In speaking about the appointment, Oliver admitted “I’m hugely excited to be taking on the role and feel very honoured to be working with such a great team. Our core business of valuing and selling dental practice remains our cornerstone and with a long-term vision to ensure we continue to develop FTA to support the next generation of dentists and dental professionals to realise their dreams and ambitions of practice ownership, just as we have been doing for the past 36 years. This means ensuring the services we provide are always of the highest quality, constantly evolving to meet changes in requirements, demands and technology.”
Oliver continued, “I’m absolutely delighted that Lis will be alongside us on the journey. She has been instrumental in FTA’s progress and has a wealth of knowledge and experience that will ensure we can advance as seamlessly as possible.”
