National supported living provider Eden Futures has promoted group chief operating officer Dawn Berry to the role of chief executive.
Berry will succeed Andrew Lennox who, after five years leading the organisation, is returning to the healthcare sector.
Berry’s appointment will be effective from Monday 1 July, with Lennox transitioning out of the role during June.
Eden Futures chair Stephen Collier said: ‘Whilst we are sad to see Andrew move on, I am really pleased that Dawn has agreed to take on the role of CEO. This is an exciting time at Eden Futures as we look to continue our year-on-year growth, and Dawn’s experience with Eden Futures will help to maintain that.
‘I know that we will all want to actively support Dawn as she takes on this new challenge and she is a real credit to Eden’s ability to develop its own. It is right that we also recognise Andrew’s contribution over the last five years and thank him for all he has done in getting us to where we are now.’
Eden Futures has more than 1,200 staff members who provide care and support to over 630 service users to ensure they are able to live independent lives in their communities.
