Stephen Ashby

Having worked in various industries including aviation, publishing and agriculture, I joined the veterinary profession nearly 16 years ago where I was employed as a territory manager by none other than Cathy Gurney for one of the leading veterinary pharmaceutical companies.


During my time there I sold anti-infectives, cardio-nephrology and pain management drugs together with surgical products and nutraceuticals into the companion animal, food producing and equine market places as well as being involved in numerous product launches, in-house training and key account management.  Over the years, both Phil Gurney and Iain Rivers were also employed by the same company so joining Vetruus is a bit like coming home for me!

Sandie, my wife, and I were married in the mountains of Andalusia in Spain during 2010. We live on the edge of the Ashdown Forest in East Grinstead, West Sussex together with our 2 children and Bailey the dog.

When I’m not working I enjoy watching and playing sport (probably more of the former nowadays!), skiing, cycling, walking, travelling, photography, music and good restaurants, although not all at the same time.
