Our Directors

Franklin Vets is owned and managed by eight Directors who are led by Managing Director, Dr Mark Hosking.

Franklin Vets has evolved over the years to a significant size business, and accordingly the business now requires a high level of governance to ensure the business is sustainable, and manages the responsibilities it has to its 130 employees and the many communities the business is a part of.

Each of the directors are responsible for one or more of the teams, allowing for decision making at a local level where it is needed most.
