Gurgaon based CORE Diagnostics has appointed Dinesh Chauhan as its new Executive Officer starting September 1st, 2020. Presently, he was holding the post of Chief Operating Officer.
Dinesh is a founding member of the company and joined CORE in 2013. He has over 30+ years of experience in the diagnostics industry. He will also join the board of directors of the company.
Responding to his new role Dinesh said, “I am humbled at the confidence that the board has put in me. I have seen the organization grow from a small start-up to a 400+ strong team. Taking over from a Founder-CEO is never easy but I am looking forward to all the opportunities and challenges this next phase will bring.
This is an incredibly exciting time for our industry in general and for CORE in specific. The role we will play in the next few years in healthcare will be key to determining where healthcare will go in the future. Diagnostics and the underlying data that we generate and analyze has a tremendous impact on healthcare outcomes. This has only become more evident during the current pandemic.”
Zoya Brar, the current CEO and the Founder of the company is moving on and will also resign from the board. She will continue to support the company as an advisor to the board and the CEO.
She writes, “While many companies have shrunk and become more vulnerable in the last two quarters, CORE has grown by 100% in that time. We have now served over 500,000 patients. The last few months have been a great testament to the culture and ethos of the organization. People haven’t just remained loyal and brave; the team has also been the most energetic and passionate I have ever seen it. CORE as an organization has scaled and our values of trust, transparency, and a high-performance culture have remained robust.
It is now the right time to hand over the baton to Dinesh. Not many people have the pleasure of choosing their own successor. Even rarer is the opportunity to train them yourself. I am glad I have had that privilege. As for me, I am going to take some personal time before letting my love for entrepreneurship take over my life again.”
