In a statement, the global leader in health technology stated that, with over 17 years in the healthcare industry, Quinlan brings a wealth of experience.

He succeeds Caroline Clarke who is leaving Philips after a 15-year tenure at the company, including nine years as leader for APAC, the firm said.
As healthcare providers in APAC continue to grapple with challenges such as staff shortages, growing demand and financial pressures, Quinlan will lead Philips in the region as it supports healthcare providers through digital transformation.

“Through our portfolio of integrated workflow solutions, smart connected systems and devices, and integrated diagnostics, we are assisting healthcare providers in increasing productivity, improving outcomes, and enhancing patient and staff experience. I look forward to strengthening our relationships with customers and other stakeholders in the region,” he added.

“Quinlan’s passion for delivering first-class healthcare, and his dedication to pursuing our mission of improving people’s health and well-being uniquely qualify him to lead our APAC organization into the future,” he added.
Caroline Clarke said “We have witnessed growth and unforgettable achievements together in APAC including transforming healthcare with AI and digitalisation and the support of new models of care. All of this would not have been possible without a talented and dedicated team.”
She continued, “I also want to extend my gratitude to our customers and partners for their trust and collaboration. I have no doubt that Philips will continue to succeed in the capable hands of Quinlan. I wish him and the team much success.”
