Westfield Health appoints CEO, aims to become 'market leader in health and wellbeing'

Corporate health and wellbeing services provider Westfield Health has appointed David Capper as its CEO.

The move comes as the company is looking to focus on a new brand proposition and strategy, which will offer its clients new wellness programmes focusing on physical activity, mental health, nutrition and sleep.

Westfield has increasingly looked to pivot towards offering preventative healthcare for corporations – with a focus on getting people physically active – and last year acquired workplace wellbeing solutions provider Working Health.

It has also partnered with Sheffield Hallam University's Advanced Wellbeing Research Centre, which is currently under construction at the Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park. Once open, AWRC is set to become the most advanced research centre in the world for developing innovations that will improve population health and physical activity levels.

Earlier this year, Westfield signed a three-year deal with London Sport aimed at supporting the wellbeing of Londoners through sports-focused interventions.

It has also partnered Sheffield International Venues (SIV) to create an exclusive “access all areas” gym and mental health support membership, available at seven of SIV’s Fitness Unlimited venues.

Capper, who re-joined Westfield Health in 2015 as commercial director, is seen as integral to driving the organisation’s new strategy and, according to Westfield chair Graham Moore, was instrumental in securing the partnership with AWRC.

“In David we have a leader who is passionate about our vision and strategy, who understands the market we operate in and has a network of contacts, both nationally and internationally to continue our journey of becoming a world class health and wellbeing company," Moore said.

Speaking on his appointment, Capper added: "It’s an exceptionally exciting time, as we continue our journey to becoming a leading health and wellbeing organisation in the UK and beyond."
