Care provider, Meallmore Ltd, has appointed Gavin Manson and Martyn Everett to its Board of Directors in non-executive roles.

Gavin is currently Non-Executive Director of Unbound Group PLC and until June was Chairman of Hostmore PLC. His previous experience includes being Chief Financial and Operating Officer of Electra Private Equity PLC and holding Finance Director roles at Thomas Cook Group PLC and Premier Farnell PLC. He has held senior leadership positions in businesses across a range of sectors over the last 25 years, including clothing, travel and hospitality. He brings extensive skills in growth, financing, performance improvement and mergers and acquisitions (M&A).

Martyn is a seasoned professional, with extensive experience leading strategic assignments for businesses in the publicly quoted, private equity and public sectors. He is currently Non-Executive Director at Stewart Milne Group, as well as Non-Executive Director and Chairman of the Audit Committee at Interserve Group. His previous roles include Chairman of Mar City PLC and Redhall Group PLC, and Executive Chairman of Whitworths Group.

Meallmore is committed to providing high quality care and support, investing in staff training, engagement and communication to ensure residents have access to the best possible care. The company provides a range of residential nursing, dementia and mental health care across Scotland.

Cillian Hennessey, managing director of Meallmore said:
“It’s a real pleasure for us to have Gavin and Martyn join our board of directors. Both bring a fresh perspective, with a focus on steady growth, efficiency and best practice.
“On behalf of all my colleagues, we offer both of them an extremely warm welcome to the care industry and look forward to seeing their impact on our organisation.”

Gavin Manson commented:
“Meallmore is a strong, well-run business with a track record of measured growth and a strong sense of purpose and ethics. Whilst the care industry is new to me, it has similar characteristics to many of the businesses that I have enjoyed working with previously, with a real focus on its people and clients.

“I hope that Meallmore will continue to perform financially strong, as well as providing high quality care to its residents and a rewarding career to its colleagues. I’m looking forward to using my experience to support the business and objectives of management and shareholders.”

Martyn Everett added: “Meallmore is an impressive, longstanding family business and I look forward to working with this team in my new role to build an even more successful future.”

Since opening its first care home, Daviot Care Home (formally known as Meallmore Lodge) in Inverness in 1987, Meallmore has grown to become one of Scotland’s leading care providers.
