“I look forward to working alongside him to further expand Oakland Care into a brand which is known across the sector for delivering exceptional person-centred care in luxurious surroundings.”

Iain Anderson, Chairman of Oakland Care said:

“I am absolutely delighted to be taking up the Chairman’s role at Oakland Care with the aim to support Harnoop and the team in creating a value for money, quality care focus for our residents. I am joining Oakland at a hugely exciting time as we open our third luxury home in Eastbourne with further new builds planned over the coming years.”

Tim Ashlin, Healthcare Partner at Synova Capital said:

“The appointment of Iain to chair the Oakland Board comes at a crucial time as our new home openings really start to ramp-up and increase the scale of the group. Iain’s vast experience of leading successful and high quality companies will undoubtedly be a great asset to us and I’m sure he will do a fantastic job of supporting Oakland as we continue to grow our brand and reputation”.
