Toast of Surrey 2012

Mark Whiteley - Business Personality of the Year 2012.

Since 1998, when he was appointed as a Consultant Vascular Surgeon, Mark Whiteley has become involved in the business side of Medicine.

Mark found that he was virtualy impossible to get funding for his venous research and so he set up businesses to fund his research and development.

Initally Mark set up a private practice as many surgeons do - but soon realised it would not be enough to fund the research the venous world needed.

Therefore he set up The Whiteley Clinic in 2001 and also an Internet Company called Medical Pages. As one of the first Medical Portals on the internet, Medical Pages was initally very successful. However, Mark didn't have a controlling interest in the company and so, when funding was reduced in the early 2000's, he moved his domain names out of the company.

Using the knowledge he had obtained from his internet experience he was able to create a very successful web presence for his clinic, The Whiteley Clinic.

Mark Whiteley's Internet StrategyMark’s internet strategy has been very successful for many years, and in 2012 attracted the attention of some domain name experts and internet marketers in the USA.
