Prior to this, Neil acted as Financial Controller at Jagex Ltd., and spent six years with Deloitte, advising a range of listed and private biotech and pharmaceutical clients. Neil is a chartered accountant and is a Fellow of the Institute of the Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW).

Neil Tween, CFO at Owlstone Medical, commented: “I am delighted to be joining Owlstone Medical at this exciting time and look forward to contributing to the growth of the business as it pursues its important mission to save over 100,000 lives and $1.5 billion in healthcare costs.”
