Meallmore: Gavin Manson and Martyn Everett
Care provider Meallmore has appointed Gavin Manson and Martyn Everett as non-executive directors.
Meallmore has a network of 26 care homes across Scotland, providing a range of residential nursing, elderly, dementia and mental healthcare.
Manson has worked in senior leadership positions across a range of sectors over the past 25 years, including clothing, travel and hospitality and has experience in growth, financing, performance improvement and mergers and acquisitions. His previous experience includes working in chief financial and operating officer at Electra Private Equity and holding finance director roles at Thomas Cook Group and electronic system firm Premier Farnell. Manson is a non-executive director of clothing and footwear company Unbound Group and until June was chairman of hospitality group Hostmore.
Everett has experience leading strategic assignments for businesses in the publicly quoted, private equity and public sectors. His previous roles include chairman of builder Mar City and engineering business Redhall Group, as well as executive chairman of food company Whitworths Group. He is a non-executive director at housebuilder Stewart Milne Group, and a non-executive director and chairman of the audit committee at construction company Interserve Group.
Everett said: “Meallmore is an impressive, long-standing family business and I look forward to working with this team in my new role to build an even more successful future.”
Meallmore’s managing director Cillian Hennessey commented: “[Manson and Everett] bring a fresh perspective, with a focus on steady growth, efficiency and best practice. 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.”
