Antech was founded in 1986 as Veterinary Centers of America and in 1987 it was acquired by VCA.  It has evolved over the years thanks to key acquisitions and an innate understanding of the needs of veterinarians and their teams.   Since 2017, Antech is driving the future of pet health as part of Mars Veterinary Health, a family-owned company focused on veterinary care.

  • Strong strategic and operational experience, leading transformation, OD, integration and change management. Hands on.  Not afraid to roll-up his/her sleeves and do the work.  A plus if the person also demonstrates the ability to play strategically and is commercially aware (i.e. someone that sees the big picture, bring innovative/transformations ideas and can talk and add value beyond P&O).
