A bit about us...
Nigel Perry - 3D Sales Manager
"I’m here to help you with your CT & MRI needs. I joined IMV imaging in 2001 when it was BCF Technology.
With extensive experience in providing veterinary diagnostic imaging equipment and training, I am here to help our customers with CT/ MRI and finding the right solution for their practice. As well as this, I support equine practices worldwide through providing ultrasound equipment and training. I enjoy my job as it brings together technology, animals and travel which are three areas that really interest me. On top of that vets are great people to work with. I’ve had pets all my life and currently have two ginger cats called Vic and Bob as well as a Jack Russel Terrier called Jeff."

The rest of my time is spent looking after my rescue dog Edgar and elderly ex-event horse, Jane who is now enjoying retirement in the Cheshire countryside.”

Hannah Yeates - Key Account Manager
"My name is Hannah and I am a Veterinary Key Account Manager at IMV Imaging with an aspiration to empower individuals and practice teams to improve the standard of imaging in the veterinary industry. I ensure practices are advised of the correct equipment for their needs, are confident in obtaining optimally diagnostic images and proactive in the storage and maintenance of their images and equipment. Since graduating from the Royal Veterinary College I have gained experience across a range of species, with my main passion being equine and companion animal and formalised my learnings by obtaining my Certificate of Advanced Veterinary Practice (CertAVP). Whilst working in practice I became curious as to where clinical excellence and business meet which lead me to complete a Masters focused on importance of clinical and non-clinical knowledge in practice. I enjoy applying my clinical, application and business knowledge to find solutions for practices to enable them to provide the best care to their patients and clients. Never one to be found unoccupied when not at work I can be found signing up for off road triathlons, developing my spin instructor skill, baking, renovating our house all under the watchful eye of my cat Captain."

“I’m the Account Manager for Scotland and I’m here to support our customers by helping them gain confidence with their imaging skills through clinical and equipment training. I graduated from Liverpool Vet School and then worked in mixed practice and small animal ECC before joining the company in 2015. As a vet, I understand the frustrations that come from poor equipment or poor knowledge of how to use equipment and I am here to help customers find the right equipment for their practice and show them how to get the most from it. Outside work my interests include touch-rugby, sailing, scuba-diving, and looking after my border collies and horse.”
