Anchor Hanover has appointed Rob Martin to its executive board as Managing Director of Care Services, with effect from 1 March 2021.
Rob, who is currently Director of Care Quality at Anchor Hanover, has been part of the not for profit care home provider’s senior leadership team since 2013 and has more than 20 years’ experience in health and social care.
One of Rob’s first roles was Registered Care Home Manager in the North West of England. He also served in the Royal Artillery for almost seven years after leaving school.
Rob takes on the role from Mark Greaves, who has successfully run the operation since 2015 following the acquisition of 24 care homes from LNT Group.
Anchor Hanover now boasts the highest level of CQC compliance of any large provider and was named Large Residential Care Provider of the Year at the 2019 LaingBuisson Awards.
Rob said: “I am honoured to take on this role and look forward to building on the organisation’s 50 years of history to ensure all our care services are places where people can love living in later life.”
Mark added: “It has been an honour and a privilege to work alongside colleagues throughout the organisation who have such passion and commitment to improve the lives of older people. It is also fantastic to be handing over the reins to Rob who I have every faith will continue to take the care business from strength to strength.”
Chief Executive Jane Ashcroft CBE commented: “We have a commitment to supporting colleagues to develop their careers at Anchor Hanover so I’m delighted that Rob Martin is joining the Executive Board. He takes over a service which has remained high performing despite the challenges posed by the pandemic. I would like to thank Mark Greaves for his outstanding contribution to the organisation and wish him continued success in his next ventures.”
