The co-founder and CEO of Manchester-based Push Doctor has stepped down amid reports it is planning to cut up to 40 jobs.
Having been founded in 2013, the online GP service has grown rapidly from just four staff in 2016 to 118 as of May this year and secured investment of almost $38million.
Earlier this year it announced it was investing £3m in a new 15,000 sq ft campus with plans to hire a further 60 employees by the end of the year.
The Sunday Times has claimed that CEO Eren Ozagir stepped down “due to a difference of opinion with the board over the direction of the company”, including plans to cut up to 40 jobs.
Push Doctor confirmed that Ozagir had stepped down and been replaced as CEO by Wais Shaifta, formerly director of global operations at Treatwell.
The start-up would not however comment on the reported job cuts.
Susanne Given, chairman of Push Doctor, said: “Eren can be proud of the role he has played in pioneering digital health and establishing Push Doctor as a recognised consumer brand in digital primary care. He leaves with the best wishes of the board and colleagues.”
