Berry decides against UKHCA chief executive role

UKHCA in search of chief executive as Berry decides against role
Roger Berry will not be joining UKHCA

Roger Berry will not be assuming his role as chief executive of the United Kingdom Homecare Association (UKHCA).

The organisation said that Berry, who had been due to start his role in early March, would not be taking up the position due to a change in his personal circumstances.

He was due to replace outgoing chief executive Bridget Warr, who has left the association.

Berry, who has been managing director of several organisations including Healthmatic, which he co-owned, has returned to Wiltshire.

UKHCA chair Trevor Brocklebank said: ‘While the association seeks another chief executive, I will work closely with the strong leadership team of Peter Randall, Colin Angel and Andrew Heffernan to ensure we continue to drive forward our plans for representing and supporting our members.’
