The Animal Health Trust (AHT) has a new chief executive, Dr Mark Vaudin.

Dr Vaudin, who is currently deputy chief executive of the organisation, will take over from Dr Peter Webbon at the end of September.

Dr Vaudin has been at the AHT for 9 years. The veterinary charity, which is based in Suffolk, does vital work and research into disease in companion animals (horses, dogs and cats).

“I am, like everyone at the AHT, committed to fighting disease and injury in animals,” said Dr Vaudin.

“I’m determined that we will continue to make significant scientific and clinical advances that will have a major impact on the lives of all companion animals and their owners.”
