Nick Pennell has been appointed Head of Finance at Stockport based not for profit elderly care provider, Borough Care.
Nick will be responsible for updating the company’s financial processes and reporting capabilities to help improve efficiency through the introduction of new technology and systems.
“The care sector as a whole is facing many challenges, especially in regards to number of beds, local authority funding and aging infrastructure,” Nick said.

There is a key role for the Head of Finance to shape some of the thinking around funding, investment decisions and growth plans. The opportunity to help do this really appealed to me. This position also means I can use my skills in the area of finance transformation.
“I see Borough Care is a forward thinking, innovative company; characteristics which match my own values. I’m looking forward to helping the business continue growing.”
