Annette D’Abreo is MD at Ceuta Healthcare in Bournemouth, a business started in 1994 with partner Edwin Bessant. She graduated from Kingston with a degree in French and Economics. Developed locally but now with international reach to over 100 markets, Ceuta manages healthcare, personal care and food and drink brands on behalf of their owners. Annette brings her general business skills – strategy, structure, sales, marketing and financial – and sees the BSO and Ceuta as likeminded organisations with huge energy full of talented people and a real desire for success. In May 2018 Ceuta was in the Sunday Times International Fast Track 100 and in the LSE 1000 British Companies to inspire Britain. Annette is also on the boards of Bournemouth University and the PAGB, her industry association.
