Healix International opens Vancouver office


Healix, the global provider of security, travel and medical risk management and assistance services, today announces the opening of its new office in Vancouver as the business responds to growing demand for its crisis, security and risk management services.

The opening of the new office comes as Healix expands its operational team in Canada following a surge in interest for its services – a direct result of the turbulence seen throughout 2022. The new office, led by Eilidh Thomson, Regional Security Manager, will offer three distinct services for businesses in the region, including intelligence, security advice and assistance and crisis and risk consulting. The focus is to further improve service quality with in-situ regional experts able to assist all clients and prospects in the same time-zone, rather than from other bases in the UK and Singapore.

Vancouver was chosen as the most strategic, practical and advantageous location for a new office, providing much better access to clients that are already based there, as well as ease of travel to the U.S. The city’s world class universities also provide a talent pool for recruitment for Healix’s growing team.

Charlie Butcher, CEO at Healix International, commented:

“Given the volatility seen in 2022, it’s clear that the services we provide are extremely important to businesses around the world. We already provide support to clients in North America and have teams based in multiple locations across the U.S., but the operational side was always run from the UK, Singapore, South Africa or New Zealand. Opening the first office in the region will mean we can deliver even better services by working with clients more closely on a day to day basis. From a business perspective, it also provides a fantastic opportunity to expand further with more services to come later down the line.

“With the opportunity to work with multiple reputable universities and have access to such a wide talent pool, Vancouver was a natural choice and we’re looking forward to seeing the success of the team in 2023.”
