“David’s reputation for excellence in healthcare is second to none and his vision for growth will confidently allow us to enter new markets and the next phase of expansion. His evolution within Icon’s executive leadership team is a natural progression and the ideal appointment for Icon to succeed.” said CEO Mark Middleton.
