New CTO joins Spirit Digital Team

Spirit Digital is thrilled to welcome Owen Tribe, who joined the team as Chief Product & Technology Officer earlier this month.

Owen is the third new addition to the team so far this year as we continue an exciting period of growth. He’ll be tasked with driving the growth of the Spirit Digital technology and product teams as we scale rapidly to improve health outcomes for as many people as possible.

Bringing over 25 years’ experience in harnessing the power of digital and the web to deliver results, Owen has previously worked with the Met Office, the Department for Education, DEFRA and tech companies across multiple industries, delivering innovative digital and technology programmes.

The move to Spirit Digital marks his first in-house role in the UK since 1998 – and Owen’s looking forward to taking on the new challenge:

“I have built and delivered a number of hyper-growth digital platforms across the globe, in many different sectors and across Government as well as private sector organisations. I'm excited to be leading part of the revolution in healthcare with a brilliant team who are equally excited to go on this journey.”

Chris Barker, CEO of the Spirit Health Group, added:

“Owen’s experience in ‘building unicorns’ across the digital space makes him an exciting addition to the team as we continue the rapid growth of Spirit Digital. Focusing on scaling the development and delivery of our CliniTouch Vie platform, we’re expecting brilliant things as Owen, and the wider team, continue our mission of making health easy.”
