Novamind Inc., (CSE:NM) (“Novamind”) a mental health company specialized in psychedelic medicine, announces the expansion of its leadership team with the appointment of Pierre Bou-Mansour, P.Eng., to the role of Chief Operating Officer. Effective immediately, Mr. Bou-Mansour will assume responsibility for ensuring operational excellence as Novamind develops its network of clinics, retreats, and research sites in 2021 and beyond.
An accomplished senior executive and leader, Pierre brings a wealth of experience managing large and complex healthcare organizations.

In this role, Bou-Mansour successfully led the expansion of Public Health Ontario’s testing capacity for the COVID-19 response.
Pierre Bou-Mansour said, “Novamind’s Cedar Psychiatry clinics and Cedar Clinical Research sites are both well-positioned to scale as regulated access to psychedelic medicine continues to expand rapidly in jurisdictions around the world. I look forward to working with the leadership team to ensure strategic expansion of our operating model for clinical care and clinical research in psychedelic medicine.”
Pierre has a proven track record for growing and transforming healthcare companies. He spent eight years at LifeLabs, serving as the COO from 2017 to 2019, and successfully led the integration of two acquired competitors. During this period, LifeLabs grew into one of the largest medical service companies in Canada, with over 5,700 employees, 370 patient access sites, and over US $977 million in annualized revenue (dnb.com).
