Ten has also announced Dr. Glen Richards, veterinary surgeon and founder and former CEO of Greencross, Australia’s largest pet care company, will join Shark Tank in 2016.
The successful entrepreneur, whose company is worth an estimated $700 million, will join resident Sharks Janine Allis (Boost Juice), Andrew Banks (Talent2), Steve Baxter (internet pioneer) and Naomi Simson (RedBalloon) when filming of season two starts this week.
Dr. Richards spent 10 years building a multi-million dollar integrated pet care empire, which now operates more than 130 veterinary hospitals in Australia, New Zealand and China.
Ten executive producer, Paul Leadon, said: “Network Ten is delighted to welcome Dr. Glen Richards to the Shark Tank.
“With his experience in retail and health care – both animal and human – Glen’s skill set will be a great addition to the Tank and a perfect complement to the other Sharks. And as we all know, Network Ten just loves a vet.”
Real estate guru and chief executive of McGrath Estate Agents, John McGrath, has stepped down from his role on Shark Tank due to his increasing business commitments.
