Koa Health, the digital mental healthcare provider, has announced that Charlotte Hilton has joined the company’s growing team as UK Commercial Director and will oversee all commercial efforts in the UK from sales and marketing to client success and partnerships.
Charlotte Hilton most recently served as Healthcare and B2B Partnerships Manager at Headspace, where she led the development and management of the international team’s Enterprise partner channel strategy, specifically focused on UK health and benefits brokers and health insurance carriers. In addition to her expertise in business development and growth, Hilton has worked on end-to-end customer experience, supporting users directly on their mental wellbeing journey.
Dr Oliver Harrison, CEO, Koa Health said: “Over the course of the pandemic there has been a sharp increase in the number of people experiencing mental health challenges across the UK, with government data showing twice as many people reporting symptoms of clinical depression and anxiety. We are delighted to welcome Charlotte, who brings fantastic experience of growing a digital mental health business. She will be pivotal in helping us realize our mission of providing effective and clinically-validated digital mental health solutions to users across the UK.”
Commenting on her appointment, Charlotte Hilton, UK Commercial Director, Koa Health said: “Never before has there been such a need to scale access to tools and evidence-based care for mental health. Whilst the Government’s recent budget investment in NHS mental health facilities is a step in the right direction, the last 18 months have drastically exacerbated the need for mental health support across all demographics.
“I was really impressed by what Koa Health is building – its approach of creating a comprehensive and accessible set of solutions addressing the full spectrum of mental healthcare, means the company is truly positioned to address this need for mental health support. I couldn’t be more thrilled to leverage both my passion and years of experience in this sector to join a company so dedicated to making an impact of this significance.”
