Audley Group appoints chief operating office
Audley Group has appointed Nick Edwards (pictured) as chief operating officer.
Edwards will be the first person to hold this newly created post and will remain on the Audley Group Board but as an executive director.
Edwards has been a non-executive director for the past five years during his time as chief financial officer at Moorfield Group.
Edwards spoke of his appointment: “I’ve admired the progress Nick and the team have made for many years, and this move reflects my belief that the greatest achievements for Audley are yet to come.
“I am excited to join what I know is a business that will change the face of retirement living forever, in the UK and beyond.
“Living in an Audley or Mayfield retirement village has the capacity to enhance the quality of life for so many people.
“The high quality accommodation, the extensive facilities, the access to care and the benefits of being part of a like-minded community should be available to more people and I look forward to helping deliver this goal.”
Nick Sanderson, chief executive at Audley Group, said: “Nick knows Audley as well as anybody and understands intimately what we are trying to achieve, immediately and in the longer term.
“His sector specialism, combined with his experience of working with large institutions, means he is the ideal person to help us grow and capitalise upon the significant opportunity that exists.
“This appointment signifies Audley Group is entering a new phase; Nick will be instrumental in ensuring it is a successful one.”
Edwards will take up his new role in December.
