Meet the Directors
The Wylie Veterinary Centre was opened in 1908 by Mr Stuart Wylie. Two further generations of the Wylies followed – Richard (Dick) and his son David. The business remained a Partnership until October 2015 when it became a limited company. It is now jointly owned by Richard Doyle and Morkel Pienaar.
My wife Angela and I have been part of the Wylies family since 1991 after graduating from the Vet School in South Africa. Since then we have had 4 visits to the Harold Wood Maternity Unit (as it was then) and 3 visits to the Cats Protection League! I have a certificate in internal medicine but ultrasound is my passion! Outside of work, family commitments take up most of my time although I also enjoy swimming, bike riding and yoga. I feel privileged to be able to work as a Vet in the UK and to be part of the Wylies family.
I’m another South African who left the sun and wide open spaces of my homeland for the irresistible lure of Essex! I’ve worked at Wylies for a long time now and became a partner last year. I have a certificate in ophthalmology but enjoy all aspects of veterinary practice.
