Alan Bell

Dr. Alan Bell – Executive Chairman

Dr Alan Bell graduated in Veterinary Science in 1979 and, after early postings to mixed and livestock practice in rural and regional New South Wales, quickly entered equine practice to pursue a lifelong passion. In 1983 Alan moved to Sydney to open his own practice in the highly competitive Sydney racing scene.

At the age of 30 in 1986, Alan purchased Parnell from the retiring owner Dr Richard Boon. Over the next 20 years Alan grew Parnell exponentially, phasing out of equine veterinary practice and becoming a prominent thoroughbred horse trainer and breeder, and ultimately twice-champion racehorse owner of Australia. Latterly, Alan’s career in thoroughbred administration and governance includes service as Vice-Chairman, and then Chairman, of Racing NSW, the statutory peak industry body in the major racing and breeding State of Australia.

In 2005 Alan resolved to expand Parnell from its regional origins in home markets and become a global pharma player with a focus on the U.S. market. Many notable milestones have since been achieved, including U.S. FDA approval to manufacture sterile injectables at the Alexandria facility in 2013. Alan is Executive Chairman of the Board and continues to work closely with the CEO and across the entire team to realise the Parnell vision.
