Holmes Care Group appoints finance director

Holmes Care Group has appointed Matthew Hansard as its finance director.

Hansard has finance experience working in the UK and Australia in domiciliary, fertility and clinical care settings. In his new role, he will be working with Holmes Care Group managing director Sharifa de la Prida.

He is joining the business at a ‘pivotal time’ as it focuses on both buy and build and organic growth strategies.

The provider operates 11 care homes in England and Scotland. It provides residential and nursing care for older adults, people with dementia as well as support services for individuals with disabilities. It also offers day services for older people with disabilities and mental health challenges.

In March last year, Impact Healthcare REIT bought nine homes operated by subsidiaries of the provider in a sale and leaseback transaction.

Carter Schwartz’s head of CFO practice Richard Baker advised on the appointment.
