Jim has been the driving force behind Clyde Munro Dental Group’s rapid expansion and on-going success. In 2015 he identified the opportunity for a Scottish-based dental group that had community service and patient engagement at its heart. The newly formed business made its first acquisition of seven practices in November that year.
The group has gone from strength to strength and at the start of 2022 had grown to 55 practices across Scotland, looking after 9% of the Scottish population. The group continues to grow with new practices joining on a monthly basis.
Jim has a passion for innovation and working closely with his teams to deliver demonstrable success. He has a determined vision that Clyde Munro will be at the forefront of delivering patient care across all of Scotland’s communities and through a commitment to sustainability, will make a positive impact on the environment.
Jim is often heard to quote that “I have been in the ‘smiles’ business for most of my career” This stems from him having spent 27 years before founding Clyde Munro, in leadership roles at Polaroid where the healthcare market was a significant part of his business responsibility.
Outside of work Jim likes nothing better than spending time with his four grandchildren and in particular taking them for an ice cream and a walk along the beach in St Andrews where he lives. Jim is also a classic car fan and enjoys a drive in his 42 year old Land Rover (when its working!).
