Ep 2: Dr Garret Turley

In today's episode we talk to veterinary entrepreneur turned private equity financier Garret Turley. Garret was one of the founders of Pet Doctors which he grew in 1995 from one site clinic to a 30 hospital behemoth, stretching across the south coast of England. He successfully sold the business to CVS in a multimillion pound deal in 2011. Garret now manages a London-based, private equity investment fund focussed on the healthcare and education spaces. In addition to his veterinary degree which he gained at Cambridge University, he holds and MBA from Henley. Our conversation is wide ranging and covers a lot of ground including how an upbringing immersed in the sectarian violence of Northern Ireland helped motivate him to become a high performer and where he sees the opportunities/threats to the veterinary industry from areas as diverse as technology, corporate influence and the long overdue impact of female leadership. Garret is a high octane but great fun person so sit back and enjoy some awesome insight and if Celtic accents are your thing then you will most certainly not be disappointed by this episode. Enjoy.

The Blunt Dissection Podcast exists because everyone has a story worth listening to. It's the original and best interview podcast in veterinary medicine where the best minds in the various subcultures of veterinary medicine (and sometimes outside) are profiled/deconstructed so you can listen to their remarkable stories, and also learn the habits, routines, thought processes and anything else that makes these individuals so good at what they do.
