Sean and Jo Gavin, who, together, have led the development of Hartford Care since its foundation 20 years ago, are stepping back from executive roles in the company at the end of May 2022.
Sean Gavin will take a position on the Hartford Care Group Board of Directors and will continue to offer his wise words and experience to the group. Both will be providing ad hoc consultancy to the company as it continues to deliver care, comfort and companionship across its 16 homes.
With Sean and Jo stepping back, Hartford Care is delighted to announce the appointment of Kevin Shaw as the company’s new CEO. Kevin, who has a deep passion for social impact, has a very strong background around the development of exceptional properties.
Most recently, he created care homes and retirement villages as CEO of Savista Development and Santhem Residences. He was also the Managing Director at Audley Group and is a non-executive director at Housing Plus Group.
Of his appointment, Kevin says: “I am delighted to be joining Hartford Care Group at such an exciting time for the company. Over the next few years, we have the support of our shareholders to double the size of the group and continue building upon the strong foundations created by Sean and Jo. Hartford Care has a talented, committed and socially conscious team which I look forward to working with.”
Hartford Care Group Limited, part of a family-owned business, which was established more than a century ago in 1908, has 16 individual care and nursing homes located throughout the south of England.
