Press Release: 31 October 2017

 Change of Chief Financial Officer at Voyage Care

Voyage Care, one of the UK's leading healthcare businesses, is pleased to announce the appointment of Shaun Parker as Interim Chief Financial Officer. Voyage Care will be seeking to make a permanent appointment in the new year.

Shaun is an experienced finance professional with over 20 years in Finance Director and Chief Financial Officer roles. During this time Shaun has worked for Mars Petcare in the UK and Germany, Diageo in the USA and UK, and CPP Group in the UK. Most recently Shaun was CFO of Tunstall Healthcare Group, the leading provider of alarm equipment and response solutions to support elderly and vulnerable people in their homes. Shaun has extensive experience of finance leadership in growing businesses as well as leading corporate transactions, including numerous refinancings, an IPO, and mergers and acquisitions.

Shaun replaces Andrew Winning. Andrew has been with Voyage for over six years during which time he managed two successful bond placements, the second of which raised £250m earlier this year. Furthermore he had a major role in the acquisition of Voyage Care by Partners Group and Duke Street in 2014. Andrew has decided that it is now an appropriate time to seek fresh challenges elsewhere.

Shaun Parker, Interim Chief Financial Officer of Voyage Care said:

 "I am delighted to be joining Voyage Care where the percentage of good and outstanding services is sector leading. The focus of the Board and the wider Voyage team on care leadership, in which the care of the people we support is the single most important driving factor of the business, is one that I fully support. I look forward to working with the Voyage team to further improve our financial strength and make us more efficient and easy to do business with, to the benefit of the people we support, our customers, our staff and our investors."

Andrew Cannon, Chief Executive of Voyage Care said:

"We are pleased to welcome Shaun as the Interim Chief Financial Officer of Voyage Care. He brings with him a strong skillset ideally suited to supporting the business in the next phase of its growth and he also shares our passion for ensuring care levels remain industry leading. We would like to thank Andrew for his hard work and commitment in ensuring the company has strong financial backing for the next stage in its development. We wish him every success for the future."
