Linklaters former managing partner Tony Angel has left his job at Standard & Poor’s (S&P) to become chief executive at telehealth company Vantage Diagnostics.
The role will see Angel help the company raise funds as it moves beyond the start-up stage.
Angel left S&P following the split of its credit rating and non-credit rating businesses. He joined as executive managing director for Europe, Middle East and Africa in June 2008.
“It seemed like a good opportunity to move,” Angel said. “The credit rating agencies became regulated and the role was going to be a very different one.”
He added that the new job at Vantage, in which he was originally an investor, would see him use his business, rather than legal expertise. “It’s a big change management role,” he said. “It’s about putting in place the infrastructure to help it grow from a small company to a bigger one.”
Angel was firmwide managing partner at Linklaters from 1998 until 2007, having previously become the youngest ever appointee to the firm’s management committee.
