Fettle has been established to be a leader in proactive healthcare and enable easier access to gold standard healthcare in New Zealand.
Dr Colin Hutchison (Founder and Managing Director)
Colin is a kidney specialist, who through his time in senior leadership roles in the public and private sector saw the need for change.
As the founder of Fettle, Colin saw the need to empower more New Zealanders, and increase access to gold standard healthcare, earlier in their health care journey.
As a kidney doctor, Colin has frequently seen individuals with severe kidney disease which could have been prevented if they had been informed of what “good” healthcare looked like.
Through senior leadership roles in the public sector Colin has seen many many people wait long times for the healthcare they require and in some cases never receive it.
Dr Hutchison says:
“Fettle has been born out of the fact that in New Zealand we are used to saving for our future with KiwiSaver. Just like planning for our retirement we should be planning for our future healthcare needs and Fettle is here to guide you on a journey of understanding what good healthcare looks like.” Colin
Georgia Palmer (Operations Manager)
Georgia Palmer has extensive experience in healthcare communications, management, and administration. Most recently, Georgia started and led AskDora.ai, AI for healthcare communication. While with AskDora, Georgia helped secure a partnership with Microsoft, who acknowledged the company as one of the top 30 start-ups in the world for societal impact and change; under the Project Amplify scheme. Georgia was one of eight female Microsoft tech founders globally, which formed a Women In Tech International Leadership group.
With her experience in the health tech and administration space, Georgia has seen the inequity born in the public health sector, and the inaccessibility of gold standard private health. Passionate about proactive healthcare, Georgia knows that Fettle is more than just an investment fund, it is a healthcare movement.
