Renaissance Care: Liam Bain
Scottish care home provider Renaissance Care has appointed Liam Bain as its finance director.
Bain has experience in the care sector and previously worked at Pebbles Care, which provides care for young people in Scotland, and Fosters Funeral Directors.
Renaissance Care is pursuing a growth strategy which would take its portfolio of care homes from 16 to 30 in the next three years and double its workforce from 1,000 to 2,000 people. In addition to the purchase of new sites, there will be expansion across some of its existing homes.
The group recently revealed plans to spend £8 million on six major projects, adding a further 56 new bedrooms at six of its existing care homes.
Bain said: “I am excited to get started with Renaissance Care where I hope to bring experience in both the care sector and in privately funded businesses therefore understanding the intricacies and complexities that both of those areas bring with them.
“Throughout the group, there is a culture of ambition to grow the business and become a market leader in the care sector – this is echoed through every area of the business including throughout the board of directors right through to grassroots staff in the care homes.
“Over the last couple of years, the care sector has experienced a turbulent period of trading but at Renaissance, we are now looking to reignite our plans for growth within the group all while retaining our promise to be the leaders of person-to-person care within Scotland.”
Robert Kilgour, executive chairman of Renaissance Care, commented: “We are making substantial investments across our current portfolio as we additionally look to double the size of the group across the country. As we grow, we are fully committed to developing and working alongside our people, ensuring that we can attract and retain the very best of talent to instil a person-centred approach across each of our homes.
“To successfully achieve these goals, it is incredibly important that we have a financial director who mirrors our ambition and drive, as well as our person-centred approach, as we become one of Scotland’s major care home operators. Liam’s track growth record sets him in great stead to support growth plans while bringing benefits to those already living and working within our homes.”
