Channel 3 Consulting has appointed John Howard as CEO, to lead the company as it continues to grow and demand for its digital transformation services increases. John will be responsible for driving Channel 3 Consulting’s expansion, drawing on his extensive experience of working for consulting businesses and with healthcare organisations.

The digital healthcare marketplace is more buoyant than ever, with the NHS Long Term Plan signalling a significant role for digital in the future of the health service. Channel 3 Consulting has seen exceptional growth in recent months and is well positioned to support health and social care organisations in their efforts to capitalise on the benefits of digitalisation. With the passion, strategic leadership and hands-on delivery skills required, John will lead Channel 3 Consulting through its next phase of growth and ensure that it has the talent and infrastructure to scale up to meet demand.

John Howard, Channel 3 Consulting CEO, said: “I am very excited to have been appointed as the new CEO of Channel 3 Consulting, the UK’s leading digital health consultancy. The NHS is more committed than ever to digital transformation, and Channel 3 is the ideal partner to support health and care organisations to succeed with their digital ambitions. We’ve got a fantastic track record of helping clients use technology to improve patient care and work more efficiently, and we’ve got a great team of people who are passionate about the work we do. I’m looking forward to working alongside our customers and team in the next phase of our growth.”

John brings over 20 years of experience in management consulting, primarily in health. He has worked as a Big 4 partner, in senior roles in specialist professional services firms, and as an executive leader in frontline healthcare delivery. He is a specialist in strategic leadership, change management and digital transformation in healthcare and the wider private sector, and he has been praised for his strengths in people development and customer relationships.

Rhys Hefford, Executive Chairman, Channel 3 Consulting, said: We’ve achieved a tremendous amount over the past 10 years. Whilst we’re proud to have secured such a strong position in the market, we also recognise there are significant opportunities to develop further. The appointment of John to help drive our growth plans is something we are all very excited about. He brings with him a wealth of consulting and healthcare experience and I’m confident he will lead the business and guide the team to even bigger and better things.
