We are pleased to announce the appointment of Shaun Parker as Interim Chief Financial Officer. We 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 Care for over six years during which 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.

“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 Care 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 Care 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.”
