Founders Story

Joshua's journey from health practitioner, to business owner, to deal maker.

Our founder

Joshua Catlett

Founded by Joshua, a seasoned entrepreneur with over a decade of experience in the healthcare sector, Verilo is not your average business brokerage. Joshua’s journey began with a simple yet powerful motive: to help people. This ambition led him to become a healthcare professional at a young age. Passionate about making a bigger impact, he opened his first private healthcare clinic at age 22.

Under his leadership, this modest venture scaled quickly to become one of the largest private physiotherapy clinic groups in the UK, with 36 locations spanning from London to Manchester. Not one to settle for the status quo, Joshua successfully raised millions in growth capital to take the business to the next level. By age 30, he had acquired seven businesses, further solidifying his position as a leader in the healthcare sector.

Eventually, Joshua made the strategic decision to exit his healthcare business, selling it to a private equity firm. While many would consider this the pinnacle of their career, Joshua saw it as a turning point. He recognised the challenges faced by clinic owners trying to grow their business and secure a successful exit and the lack of support available. That’s when Verilo was born.

Verilo’s mission is a reflection of Joshua’s own experiences and values. Not only did he want to help clinic owners to maximise the value of their hard work, he also wanted to help them navigate the complex process of exiting their businesses and finding the right buyer. With Verilo, clinic owners get a partner who genuinely understands the healthcare landscape while offering a unique blend of industry expertise, business acumen, and access to a quality network of industry leaders, investors, and buyers.

Verilo’s success to date is a testament to Joshua’s dedication to helping others succeed. Through the company, clinic owners receive the resources, insights, and guidance they need to secure their legacy and look forward to new opportunities.

In every sense, Joshua has used his journey to pave the way for others, ensuring that their next chapter is not just a transaction but a fulfilling transition.
