The Challenge

In early 2016, the Woodsford TradeBridge leadership team, led by Chairman Olivier Bonavero and CEO Mark Coxhead, identified a clear market opportunity to create a technology-powered funding solution for independent pharmacies and pharmacy groups.


More than £20m in funding – and increasing year on year

“ Under Seb’s leadership, and with his significant understanding of how the pharmacy and healthcare sector is funded, the quantum of Woodsford RxBridge funds out has increased to £20m over a staggeringly short period of time.”

Who are Raysan Direct?

Raysan Direct is a specialist IT distribution and consulting business that uses marketplaces as a primary distribution channel.

After joining Newegg, we saw record sales allowing both us and Newegg to grow our GMV (Gross Merchandise Value).”


Why Woodsford TradeBridge?

“Our Woodsford TradeBridge facility allows us to continue to meet demand whilst we wait for sales payments to be released.

We have the funds available upfront to capitalise on good deals from our suppliers, and importantly to never run out of stock.”


What’s your biggest challenge?

“We are heavily reliant on spotting an opportunity with a distributor to buy a popular product at a discount, and to undercut the same product on other marketplaces.

To do this quickly, we needed immediate access to working capital – which the Woodsford TradeBridge facility offers.”
