Francine Nieto

Following a successful career with over 25 years in the healthcare industry, Francine wants to bring her talents to inspire business leaders to new levels of excellence. Francine has coached and inspired teams in her global roles in marketing, strategic planning, technology and in her leadership of commercial teams across multiple geographies in both large corporate and SMEs.

Now as a Vistage Chair, Francine can bring her experience to lead, coach and ultimately enhance the lives of SME CEOs, both professionally and personally, in the London and home counties area. Her approach focuses on the leader as a whole person; executive, mentor, spouse, parent, friend, learner and teacher. Success in business should not come at the expense of these and other dimensions.

Francine has led fast-growing businesses in the UK, Europe and Asia Pacific regions. In addition, she has developed successful businesses from scratch in Latin America and Asia Pacific.

Francine’s track record of success spans multiple facets of the ever-changing and challenging commercial environment. This has included seizing emerging market opportunities, restructuring activities, mergers and acquisitions, and building and mentoring high-performing management teams. Francine has spoken at multiple industry events on healthcare trends and issues, including the importance of self-care.

Francine is recognized as an inspirational leader who has demonstrated an ability to deliver value to clients as well as creating cohesive and motivated internal teams.
She is a great listener and believes in empowering those around her through creating a compelling vision for her team, built on a foundation of values, core purpose and team work. As well as being a Vistage Chair, Francine has her own healthcare consulting business specialising in commercial excellence, business unit strategy, team building and executive leadership development.

Outside of work Francine enjoys relaxing with her family and friends and practising yoga.
