Pacific Edge Appoints Tony Barclay to Its Board

Pacific Edge is pleased to confirm the appointment of Tony Barclay to its Board as an Independent Non-Executive Director.

Mr Barclay, who takes up the role on 21 March 2022, is a highly experienced healthcare industry leader. He brings to Pacific Edge deep experience of taking innovative New Zealand technology to international markets, including the US.

He was formerly Chief Financial Officer and Company Secretary of Fisher & Paykel Healthcare (FPH) from when the healthcare business was separated from Fisher & Paykel Appliances in 2001. From then he led the finance team and was a member of the senior leadership team until 2018, a period which saw FPH grow to be one of the largest and most successful companies on the NZX.

He is currently Independent Chair of Izon Science, a world leading Christchurch-based manufacturer of nano-biological separation and characterisation tools and Chair of Australian-based Baymatob, a pioneer in women’s health and AI-guided monitoring for pregnancy and labour. He is also an Independent Director of Veriphi, an Auckland-based technology company developing intravenous drug identity and concentration verification devices.

Pacific Edge Chair Chris Gallaher said: “We are delighted Tony has agreed to join the Pacific Edge Board. He brings to the company world-class corporate finance expertise and a deep understanding of the challenges fast growing healthcare technology companies face taking their products to the world.

“We expect these perspectives will be of enormous value as Pacific Edge works to incorporate Cxbladder technologies into global standards of care for urolthelial cancer and drives towards their adoption by clinicians and healthcare providers around the world.”

Mr Barclay said: “I am looking forward to joining the Pacific Edge board. Cxbladder offers clinicians and healthcare providers a compelling proposition. The suite of tests offers clinicians accurate, reliable, cost-effective, non-invasive urothelial cancer diagnostic tools that are backed by a growing body of high-quality peer-reviewed clinical evidence. I am looking forward to working with the team to realise the enormous opportunities the company enjoys around the world.”

Mr Barclay has been a Chartered Accountant in New Zealand since 1990 and is a member of the Institute of Directors and the Institute of Financial Professionals New Zealand (INFINZ). He received his Bachelor of Commerce degree in accounting and finance from the University of Otago, New Zealand.
