Our Story

Clanwilliam Group was formed in late 2014 when two leading Irish healthcare technology companies were acquired: Helix Health and Socrates Healthcare (now Clanwilliam Health).

Howard Beggs, then CEO of Helix Health, had a vision to bring together a number of like-minded healthcare businesses across the world. Since 2014, 15 businesses have been acquired by Clanwilliam Group.

Each of these businesses have a unique growth story and share an entrepreneurial spirit and culture that is essential to our ongoing success.

Howard’s entrepreneurial story began in 1995 when he founded a small healthcare technology company (Medicom) to provide software solutions to private medical consultants in Ireland.

Howard then undertook an expansion strategy which saw the business expand from its initial €250k start-up to revenues in excess of €13.5 million by 2014. This strategy was achieved through fundraising, multiple mergers & acquisitions and the management of an ambitious organic growth plan.

Today, the Clanwilliam Group Portfolio consists of 15 businesses, around 500 employees and revenues of over €50m.

And we’re only getting started.
