He has been instrumental in leading global mission-driven businesses in achieving positive social impact and sustainable business results.

“This is a new and exciting era at BroadReach, and we are excited about taking the Group to the next level,”  said Dr. John Sargent and Dr. Ernest Darkoh, BroadReach Co-Founders and Co-CEO’s since 2003. “Chris has a legacy of building strong leadership teams, successfully growing businesses, and is hugely respected within the industry.

I see huge growth potential across both developed and emerging economies, as we all strive to find meaningful ways to make universal health coverage a reality for everyone.”

Michael Weintraub, venerable digital health innovator and Chairman of the BroadReach board said that the time was now right to seize the opportunity of the 4th industrial revolution (4IR) and to transform the health and well-being of millions of people living in under-served communities. “We have a diverse client portfolio, world-leading technology, committed and passionate staff, supportive investors – and now we have Chris to lead us into this next chapter of the BroadReach story.”

John and Ernest will continue in their roles as Co-Founders and Board members, working to grow the Group’s work and impact in existing and new markets, and on strategic and innovation projects.
