We are delighted to announce that Jim Willis has joined Westerleigh Group as Interim CEO with effect from Wednesday 24th July. We have conducted an extensive search and have considered around 100 people. Jim stood out as being a great fit for what we need at Westerleigh.
Jim has worked for the Priory Group for the last 8 years, most recently as the CEO of Priory Adult Care, running 240 social care homes across the UK. He has also been MD and COO of their Healthcare division, which provides Mental Health hospitals and services across the country. Before the Priory, Jim had a long and successful career in the Army.
We are delighted that Jim is bringing his wealth of experience to Westerleigh as we continue to grow and develop.
We would also like to take this opportunity to say a huge thanks to Daf for his time as Interim CEO over the last few months, who will now focus on his role as CFO.
