Eminent Enterprise Technology Leader Joins Orion Health as Executive Vice President for EMEA

Orion HealthExperienced enterprise technology leader Jonathan Selby is to join Orion Health as Executive Vice President for the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region following incumbent Wayne Oxenham's promotion to President of the firm's US business.

Selby, a highly regarded industry veteran, was responsible for leading InterSystems’ growth in the United Kingdom between 2010 and 2013. He will build on the successful business development activity undertaken by Oxenham in the EMEA region for Orion Health, a world-leading electronic health records and healthcare integration solutions provider.

Selby, a London Business School alumnus and MBA, will draw on extensive experience from his numerous leadership roles in enterprise technology to grow the brand in the digitally-driven healthcare markets in the UK and throughout the wider EMEA region.

Orion Health's global Chief Operating Officer Graeme Wilson sees Selby’s appointment as testament to the strength of the Orion Health brand. "Attracting someone of Jonathan's stature to this vital role shows that we continue to build a business that is built on exceptional people, and recognises the investment and impact of our talent management and succession strategy globally," he said.

In addition to leading the UK through a period of rapid growth at InterSystems, during which revenue more than doubled, Selby built new application sales and delivery teams and sponsored numerous major UK health IT programmes, including contracts with NHS Scotland and NHS Wales.

Prior to that, Selby held positions with IBM company SPSS as Vice President EMEA - Enterprise Sales and also with Oracle.

Oxenham welcomes the arrival of Selby, with whom he will work closely until March when he takes up his new leadership role in the US. "I will be sad to leave the region after a very successful year, but I am handing over to a highly capable and inspiring individual who understands our business and puts customers at its heart."

"Following on from Wayne's achievements in growing Orion Health's reputation and presence in EMEA will be a challenge. Yet it creates an unrivalled opportunity to help the firm develop and deliver solutions to achieve its population health and precision medicine ambitions for health and care economies across the region," said Selby. "It's an exciting time to join Orion Health: the digital healthcare market is moving rapidly, and Orion Health is at the forefront of that movement."

Selby joins Orion Health on Monday 4th January and shadow Oxenham in the role until March 2016.
