Springhill Care Group has announced three key appointments which will create a new executive team and support the growth of the business.
Under the plans, a trio of key staff have been named by the company as associate directors to support managing director Donna Briggs and the group’s board of directors.
Christine Stevens has been promoted to assistant director for communications and development, Shirley Waling for finance and development, and Virginia Perkins for people and organisational development.
In their new roles for the Accrington-based group, Christine, Shirley and Virginia will play a key part in implementing the group’s vision to become the provider and employer of choice in the communities it serves.
Christine, who joined Springhill in 2000, steps up from her last role as group marketing support manager, while Virginia joined in 2015 as head of human resources. Shirley, formerly financial controller, joined in 2010.
Donna said: “Between them Christine, Shirley and Virginia have more than 25 years’ experience at Springhill Care Group and are well-placed to offer support and insight to myself and our board at Springhill.
“It is no coincidence these roles are focused on communications, finance and people and organisation.
“We believe these are the cornerstones of a successful business, with communications, for instance, playing an increasingly important role in how we demonstrate our ability to provide diverse services to potential customers and wider sector organisations.”
