In all honesty, after my recent departure from Fave, I had planned an extended vacation and even organised travel plans through mid-2024. Yet, life often surprises us. Casual chats with Danny, a close friend of over ten years, took an unexpected turn. The mission of Prenetics and CircleDNA, dedicated to providing an expansive healthcare ecosystem, thoroughly intrigued me. Realising the immense potential for us to positively affect lives, helping them to live healthier and happier, I made a conscious decision to shelve the vacation and join the cause,”shared Joel Neoh, Managing Director of CircleDNA.
Danny Yeung, CEO of Prenetics shares, “I couldn’t be more thrilled about teaming up with Joel to address some of the most pressing healthcare challenges worldwide. The healthcare landscape is undeniably complex, but I have unwavering confidence that with Joel leading CircleDNA, we are poised for significant growth while positively impacting the lives of millions across the globe. Moreover, our clinical genomics business has made remarkable strides, as evidenced by being the first Asia-based company to receive FDA clearance for a comprehensive Genomic Profiling Test. Given that this year is marked by transformation, rest assured that there are more groundbreaking developments on the horizon.”
