Management restructure at Hica
Hull-headquartered Hica Group, which operates a portfolio of 20 residential care homes, has restructured its operational management team.
The changes follow a review of operations by operations director Terry Peel and chief executive Penni Brown with the aim of providing the support to all services and managers across the group.
Kay Ling has been internally seconded as regional director for the south and west region and will take up the direct line management and support of The Lodge care home in Lancashire in the west alongside her current care home portfolio in the south.
Heidi Dugdale Dawes continues as Hica's regional director for the east and central areas as well as being the group-wide safeguard lead.
Salma Keles has been internally seconded as operations manager for homecare across the Hica Group. She will support Terry Peel in the continued shaping of homecare and extra care provision across the group. Keles will remain based at the Grimsby homecare branch.
Terry Peel said: "I am extremely excited about this core operational team being on board and am confident we have the appropriate skill mix, knowledge base and expertise that we will be able to support all staff further in achieving our key operational objectives."
Penni Brown added: "These appointments reflect the ongoing review of our support services and management structure. We want to build on our success but also help us meet new challenges facing the care sector."
