Over the last two years, the directors have created a strong senior management structure. The recent additions of Quality and Compliance Manager Adam Purnell and Operations Manager Nicola Kemp are the latest key acquisitions for the company. Their experience is helping translate and communicate the value of improvements within the home to outside accreditation bodies.
