He then moved into investment banking where he specialised in the healthcare services sector, initially as a research analyst and then into corporate finance as head of healthcare at Investec.

He is currently CFO at Mereo BioPharma Group Plc and was previously CFO at Shield Therapeutics Plc. 

Jones is also a non-executive director and chair of the audit committee at Alliance Pharma Plc. 

Stuart Quin, chief executive officer of Medica, said: ‘Medica has ambitious plans to expand and diversify its service offering and Richard’s leadership will be important as we develop the internal finance function at Medica, as well as to shape new business opportunities that will enable future growth.’
