ABGI-UK CEO Scott Henderson said: “It’s great to welcome Jill to our team. She brings a strong business acumen and formidable leadership skills to the BDM role, developed over her career within the NHS and the highly innovative medical devices sector.

“Jill’s remit covers much of the Midlands, Lincolnshire and central Wales, regions with a high concentration of manufacturing, technology and food and drink businesses which can benefit from our support in securing innovation-focused funding and tax relief.

“I look forward to working closely with her as we continue to grow ABGI’s business across the UK.”

AGBI UK started life in Edinburgh as JumpStart and was rebranded when it was taken over by the AGBI Group, part of the French group Visiatev.

At the time of the deal AGBI said it wanted to grow its UK staff by 25%.
