Athena Care Homes: Ben Wright
Athena Care Homes, a family-run care home company based in East Anglia, has appointed Ben Wright as finance director.
Wright has 15 years’ experience within the health and social care sector, working in finance and operations roles.
He said: “I enjoy being part of organisations that have a true focus on care for both residents and for colleagues, hence why I am here at Athena. During my time in the sector I have helped companies grow successfully via acquisition, redevelopment and new builds, keeping internal and external stakeholders well informed throughout.
“I will use this experience to help Athena maintain its high standards, whilst ensuring we have the financial resources, processes and reporting to help us grow as an organisation and as a team.”
Mala Agarwal, managing director of Athena Care Homes, added: “This is an important time for Athena. We have recently completed the refurbishment of our Milton Lodge community at Ashlynn Grange in Peterborough and are ready to look ahead to our next project. Ben’s role is central to our ongoing growth and we have already seen how, with his guidance and negotiation skills, we can continue to deliver the high standards of care we are passionate about within budget.”
Athena Care Homes operates five care homes in Kings Lynn, March, Peterborough and Ipswich.
