Lee Omar has been appointed to the Board of Director of not for profit operator Borough Care.
In his new position as a Non-Executive Director, Lee will support Borough Care’s Executive Team at a strategic level and also engage with residents, their families and staff, to provide feedback to the leadership team. His role will include developing relationships with external stakeholders, to help Borough Care innovate and remain commercially focussed.
Lee said: “I am looking forward to working with Borough Care’s innovative leadership team and adding my expertise and skills to the mix, as we empower our residents and their families by delivering a world class service. As a founder and CEO of a start-up company, I have had to be innovative to grow my business and survive. This has meant creating trusted partnerships with external stakeholders and doing things differently. I will be bringing this approach to Borough Care.”
Lee is CEO of Red Ninja, a design-led technology company that makes apps for the healthcare and transport sectors. He also advises governments on technology. Lee has designed apps that help older people shop online and improve their nutritional intake. He has recently worked on an app that helps prevent falls in care homes, which has been adopted by the NHS.
Dr Mark Ward, CEO at Borough Care, said: “It’s great to have Lee joining us at what is an exciting time for Borough Care. As a forward-thinking company, we have ambitions to lead a step change in the approach to care for older people and Lee’s expertise will be invaluable in helping us achieve this.”
