Homecare company Sevacare has announced some senior management changes as the company moves forward.
Founder and current chairman Ravi Bains is to reassume the role of Chief Executive, while Darren Stapelberg takes on the post of Chief Operating Officer.
The changes follow the departure of former Chief Executive Roger Booker, who has left to pursue other interests after five years with the company.
Mr Bains said: “We are grateful to Roger for the hard work and commitment he has given to Sevacare in the past five years and are proud of what we have all achieved in that period. We wish him well in the future.”
He said Sevacare was in an excellent position and looking forward to continuing to expand in the future.
Sevacare was looking to build upon its successful history of entrepreneurial endeavour and to expand into areas such as private care, children’s domiciliary care and perhaps work more closely with sevasupport, a complex care business.
“There are many opportunities ahead in homecare and I look forward to working with Darren and the management team in taking Sevacare forward to bigger and better things,” Mr Bains added.
“We are pleased to appoint Darren Stapelberg as our new Chief Operating Officer. Darren shares our vision of an expanding business which looks beyond the traditional frontiers of domiciliary care in an ever-changing world. Darren’s appointment again reiterates our commitment of appointing from within and will also lead to numerous other promotions as a result.”
Sevacare is a successful, growing homecare provider and now provides almost 93,000 hours of care and support each week to some 7,766 people from its 48 branches and head office. It provides employment for more than 4,250 care staff and office-based staff throughout United Kingdom
