LNT Group chief executive Matt Lowe will not speak on behalf of the company and share his decision on which way he will vote in Thursday’s EU Referendum.
“Organisationally I am taking a neutral approach and have declined to share my own views on the matter or likely voting intentions,” he told Care Home Professional.
LNT Group, which encompasses business ranging from care management applications to construction and running its own care homes, made a number of strategic decisions in 2015 following the promotion of Mr Lowe to CEO.
The group announced an organisational reshuffle to boost focus on the development arm of the Group, LNT Care Developments, on the back of sustained growth in interest from companies seeking modern, purpose-built, facilities for the retirement living and social care sector.
In a trading statement at the beginning of 2016, Mr Lowe said: “The positive trend in performance of the Group since the end of the 2015 year-end has continued and we are already feeling very confident about the 2016 results.”
The EU Referendum, he believes, will have little effect on the company. “I can say that we believe the impact of the vote will be negligible either way for us, with pros and cons to both results,” he says.
Like most business leaders, Mr Lowe looks forward most to the uncertainty ending. “[We are] just looking forward to knowing so we can look at the advantages,” he ends.
