Four Seasons Health Care has appointed Jeremy Richardson as chief executive officer of its private care homes business. This is a chain of more than 80 homes that will offer high quality elderly care together with hotel standards of service and activities programmes designed primarily, but not exclusively, for self-funded clients who choose to be looked after in a care home.
Jeremy Richardson has had a successful career at board level with leading companies in the hotel and service sector and as a business consultant. Most recently he was executive chairman of Menzies Hotels, on behalf of Lloyds Bank, where he successfully turned around the company before selling it in November 2013. Prior to going into the service sector he was a consultant with Bain & Company, one of the world’s leading strategy consulting businesses. He is a non-executive director of the Goodwood Estate.
He is expected to take up his new position with Four Seasons in May.
Ian Smith, chairman and interim Group ceo of Four Seasons Health Care, said: “Jeremy has a track record of growing successful businesses that are based on customer service, making him exceptionally well suited to lead our private care business. I am very pleased to welcome him to our team and look forward to working with him.”
