Our Northern Ireland Consultants

We have an experienced team on hand to help you with everything from marketing to business planning and beyond.

Joanne Hall – Northern Ireland Key Client Consultant  - Honours Degree Business Administration, University of Sheffield 

I joined the team in January 2007 as a regional consultant with the focus on providing support for practices making the transition from NHS to private care. My passion and belief in Simplyhealth Professionals together with my love and dedication to local practices kept me focused during this journey. 

Today as a Key Client Consultant I remain as passionate and enthusiastic about supporting member practices as I did then. My role has changed from those early days with Simplyhealth Professionals and as a company we have expanded our range of business support services allowing me now to focus on development and growth within local practices. 

I feel I achieve this by offering continual business support, identifying key areas such as customer care, marketing PR and seeking areas in need of training. Once identified provide the necessary tools to drive business towards new targets and goals through effective business plans. 

My twelve years experience working in dental practices has rewarded me with the ability to understand the competitive market place within which we operate and also the business requirements of a dental practice.

John McAviney – Northern Ireland Area Manager - BSSC ( Hons) in Economics and Social Sciences, Queens University

I'm the Area Manager for Northern Ireland. After graduating from Queens University in 1996 with a BSSC ( Hons) in Economics and Social Sciences, I decided to join the postgraduate management programme, which gave me a real flavour for Sales and Marketing, and I've never looked back! 

I have had the pleasure of working for some fantastic companies and Simplyhealth Professionals is no exception. I've spent the past 16 years working in a variety of interesting sectors including Advertising, Medical and Healthcare. 

Simplyhealth Professionals is a fantastic company to work for and it has given me the opportunity to share my wealth of knowledge from a sales and marketing perspective, thus helping my clients grow and develop their business.

Alan Tumilson – Regional Consultant for Northern Ireland - Higher National Diploma in Business, Finance & Distribution Studies

Having joined Simplyhealth Professionals as Regional Consultant for Northern Ireland & North England, after 14 years as an Account Manager at Hibu (Yell), I am looking forward to getting to know and learn about my clients. 

In 1993 I graduated from UUJ and spent almost 8 years with the Belfast Telegraph managing key client accounts, and coupled with my time at Yell, I have attained a solid knowledge of both traditional and digital forms of advertising such as Google. 

I am married to Cheryl and have 2 children, Matt (15) and Erin (10), so you can guess that most of my spare time is spent as the family taxi. I am a keen football fan, Man Utd are my team.
