The National Office of Animal Health (NOAH) has elected a new leadership team, including a new chair. Ned Flaxman, UK country manager for Krka UK Ltd, was elected as the organisation’s new chair for 2023/24 at the association’s AGM. He was previously NOAH’s vice-chair.

In addition, Caitrina Oakes (from Vetoquinol) was elected as past chair, Gerard Ensink (Boehringer Ingelheim) as vice-chair and Matthew Frost (Elanco) as treasurer.

Oya Canbas (Zoetis) and Rachel Smithson (Animalcare Ltd) were also elected to the NOAH board of management.

NOAH chief executive Dawn Howard said: “I congratulate Ned Flaxman as our new chair, the new officer team and board members on their election and look forward to working with them to deliver on NOAH members’ priorities.

“I would also like to note the contribution made to the association over the past two years by outgoing chair Caitrina Oakes and thank her for her great support.”
