Andrew Threlfall- founder

Since starting Malinko when it was just a germ of an idea a few years ago, it’s been an exciting journey to build the team to where we are now.  My work is split between growing the company and working with the team on all areas of product, engineering and ensuring customer delight. It is a genuine privilege to work in the healthcare sector - my wife is an anaesthetist so I get to hear first hand how systems such as Malinko make a real difference on the front line.

An excellent negotiator at Board, Executive and Operational level with a proven track record of outstanding sales achievement.
