Linex-Consulting was founded in 2022
by Dr. Jens Linek


Dr. Linek is a veterinarian and practiced vet-medicine of companion animals for 30 years.

He started at the age of 27 in taking over a vet-practice with his wife in the center of Hamburg/Germany.
They then expanded to a clinic and after 15 years of general practice and partly specialization in ophthalmology and dermatology Drs. Linek decided to open up a new concept of Vet-Practice in 2001 named Veterinary Specialists Hamburg offering 100% specialized services in Ophthalmology, Dermatology, Cardiology, Internal Medicine, Surgery.

Despite many critics from accountants and leading people in the European vet business the Veterinary Specialists Hamburg-„Start-Up“ rocketed upwards.
After constructing a 1000sqm purpose-made clinic building and further expansion they sold the business to a Swedish vet-corporate in 2014 which at that time started to come on the continental market. So Veterinary Specialists Hamburg were pioneering this new market in DACH.

In search of new challenges Dr. Jens Linek then offered analysis (staff, concept, workflow, operations) of vet clinics in Sweden and consulted and coached practices and clinics in Germany and Switzerland.

In 2020 Dr. J. Linek studied Digital Health Care at the Hasso Plattner Instiute for Digital Engineering in Potsdam and thereafter Design Thinking in Organizations.

In 2021 Dr. Linek was then asked as Director Medical Development and Inovation to project and implement an educational program for a Berlin-placed Start-Up Tech-Company, offering home-visits for companion animals via Smartphone App.
For this company he produced 20 custom-made education webinars and established a Trainee Program and an e-Learning platform for new vets in 7 months only.

Dr. Linek is now independent consultant mainly for VetGruppen, a corporate of scandinavian vet clinics.
He stands for the M&A expansion in the DACH region.
He is doing Medical Due Diligences of new units and establishing a Continuing Education Program (CEP) for VetGruppen in Germany.

He organizes CE seminars and workshops and lectures internationally.
