Raman Gandotra has been appointed as the new CEO of the Everstone healthcare platform, Everlife,
The Everstone Group is a leading private equity and real estate investment firm. It is focused on providing support and a platform for entrepreneurs, corporations, and asset owners to grow their aspirations and help them reach their end goals. It can be said that it is the biggest private equity and real estate investment firm in India and Southeast Asia.
Raman Gandotra brings with himself more than 25 years of experience. In order to help the platform grow, he will be based somewhere other than Singapore. The company looks forward to further strengthening its position in local and global markets, specifically in core markets and priority segments. This will be done through acquiring more small scale companies and through realizing synergies across the global portfolio of companies.
Before being appointed as the CEO, Gandotra was leading the British medical tech company, Smith & Nephew. He was the one responsible for the segmentation of customers based on their preferences and targeting. Moreover, he conducted operational excellence initiatives across many countries and also helped create effective engagement strategies for their distribution partners. He has also held leadership roles in pharmaceutical companies such as Baxter and Allergan (Indian and Southeast Asian Companies).
Everlife was launched a couple of years back, later on in 2017, by Eeverstone as a healthcare initiative. This platform debuted by backing one of the distributors of the medical products in Malaysia, Chemopharm Sdn Bhd. At the time of its launch, Troy Bailey was thought to be the CEO of the platform. He has an experience of 20 years in the medical devices business in Asia. He had also previously worked with GE Healthcare.
Everstone, which was founded almost 13 years ago in 2006, now has assets of approximately $5 billion, all linked to private equity and real estate investments. The firm has offices in Singapore, Mumbai, Delhi, Bengaluru, Mauritius, New York, and London. These are considered great achievements by officials at Everstone.
Everstone has expanded exponentially since its launch and has expanded its healthcare platform further with new bets this year. It plans on expanding as much as it can, and maybe bring more innovation to their healthcare initiative, Everlife.
