Dovehaven hires Jenny Davies as its first CEO

 

Dovehaven has appointed Jenny Davies as its first ever Chief Executive Officer.

 

Jenny has spent her career working at senior levels in Regulated Utilities, Telecoms and Retail and has been CEO in THG Ingenuity and M247 prior to joining the business. Her appointment comes after the group has grown rapidly over recent years, now owning 22 homes across Merseyside and Lancashire and is set to grow further under Jenny’s leadership.  

 

Mark Gilbert Owner and Chairman commented “We are so happy to have somebody with Jenny’s broad experience join the Dovehaven Board. Although Jenny is new to the sector, she has many years’ experience in highly regulated businesses and importantly has led large people centric organisations. It was not only Jenny’s commercial acumen that attracted us, but her genuine people centred leadership that made her the right choice for Dovehaven.”

 

Jenny added, it is an absolute pleasure to be joining this exceptional business.  I knew that my next role needed to be somewhere with a strong purpose and the health and social care sector has shown us all, no more than recently, how important high quality adult social care is to the people in our lives. I look forward to working with the owners and the capable team at Dovehaven to take the business forward and build the leading care home provider in the Northwest.

Dovehaven rated in UK ‘Top 20’

Dovehaven have been recognised as one of the ‘Top 20 Rated Large Care Home Groups in the UK’!  Thanks to the wonderful resident and family reviews sent to Carehome.co.uk, the care sectors very own ‘Trip Advisor’,  we are celebrating this BIG success. By way of a ‘thank you’, our Partners and Managing Director Sam Jacob sent out this message to everyone:

This is a first for Dovehaven, a wonderful accolade for the hard work and dedication of the whole of the Dovehaven ‘family’ of care homes. Thanks to our residents, their families and friends, who have taken the time to send in their reviews and ensured that we as a family business can walk tall with other, more well known, national providers.’

If that wasn’t enough, Garden Lodge Care Home has been recognised as one of the ‘Top 20 Rated Care Homes in the North West’. How proud we are of Catherine Ponzini and her team who, with the support of their residents and families, have ensured their place in this much coveted list of care homes.

It is always what others say about our care and services which is more important about what we say about ourselves, so to those families who have written kind and supportive comments, given constructive feedback and recognised our wonderful Dovehaven team members we say ‘thank you’, it means more than we can say.
