Community Integrated Care Appoints New Chief People Officer

Community Integrated Care announce the appointment of Teresa Exelby as its new Chief People Officer.

Teresa joined Community Integrated Care, one of Britain’s largest and most successful health and social care charities, on 6th January 2020.

In her role, Teresa will lead the charity’s People Services Team, which comprises its Operational field-based People Team, Payroll, Learning & Development, Employee Relations, Recruitment, Communications and Reward functions.

Teresa joins the organisation – which employs over 6000 people – from Morrisons Supermarkets, where she held the role of People Director for Manufacturing, Logistics and Head Office, and was responsible for talent, workforce planning, and all people-related activities across these teams. With a workforce of 15,000 colleagues at Morrisons, Teresa is highly experienced in leading People functions for large and complex teams.

Her career in retail spans 25 years, with notable achievements including leading the people agenda in relation to mitigating the risks from Brexit for Morrisons, and managing the people changes throughout a series of mergers, which made Morrisons the largest fresh food manufacturer in the UK.

Teresa Exelby says: “I’m really proud to join Community Integrated Care at such an exciting time for the charity, and I’m very much looking forward to working with such talented and committed people.”

“The work of our Support Workers and other frontline colleagues is absolutely life-changing, but comes with many challenges too. Already, I’ve been overwhelmed by the commitment and passion that our teams demonstrate every day, and my focus is now to support those teams in enabling the people we support to live the best lives possible.”

Chief Executive Officer, Mark Adams, says: “We’re delighted to welcome Teresa to our team at such a pivotal time for Community Integrated Care. Her incredible career so far and expertise in working strategically with operational colleagues is second-to-none.”

“We’re almost two years through our ambitious strategy, We Dare, which has some exceptionally bold people aims. Vital to everything we do of course, is an engaged, motivated and capable workforce. We’re extremely honoured to have 6,000 brilliant colleagues who deliver exceptional work day in, day out – expert leadership from someone of Teresa’s calibre can only galvanise this further and I know her influence will be immeasurable.”
