8 November 2021

Pennard Vets, the largest veterinary practice in the world to become employee owned has appointed a managing director with more than 17 years industry experience.

Jeff Gascoyne joins Pennard Vets from Scarsdale Vets, where he has spent the last five years as a partner, executive director, and latterly, executive chairman. He previously worked for 12 years at Vets4Pets as its operations director and then business acquisitions director and holds an Honorary Associate Professorship in Veterinary Business Management from The University of Nottingham School of Veterinary Medicine and Science.

“The fact that all Pennard Vets’ 99-strong team across six sites in Kent are practice owners and shareholders in the business, following the move to becoming an Employee Ownership Trust (EOT) this year, was really appealing to me. Like any new member of the team, I now also own a stake in the business."

Andy Green, a director from Pennard Vets, said: “Jeff is highly experienced and a strategic thinker, who has the ability to help us achieve our goals. He will play an important part in integrating new people and practices into our EOT model, as we expand our reach throughout Kent and beyond. With a keen focus on operations and processes within the business, Jeff will help us to give more veterinary professionals the opportunity to join Pennard Vets, whilst also ensuring our clients and patients remain at the heart of everything we do.”
