New Chief Executive and Operations Director

ICG Chair Mike Padgham, has announced that Lisa Pickard has taken up post of Chief Executive and Beverley Procter has been named as Operations Director. Lisa says 'I'm delighted to be joining the Independent Care Group at a pivotal time for social care in the UK. I am looking forward to building on the group's excellent reputation and strong partnerships and taking the organisation into the future. Social care is experiencing unprecedented challenges and it is vital that providers have a strong voice to fight for a better future for them and, of course, the many millions of people who receive and benefit from care.'

For the past six years Lisa has been chief executive at Leeds and Yorkshire Housing Association, where she has been responsible for strategic leadership, growth, operational management and delivery, and innovation in the provision of new homes and services.

Beverley joins the ICG on a two-year secondment from York NHS Trust. Keren Wilson will remain in post until 31st August to complete the handover.

Special party to celebrate work of retiring Chief Executive

An invitation has been sent to all ICG members to attend the leaving party of Keren Wilson, Chief Executive, who has run the organisation for more than 14 years and has made serving the needs of ICG members her top priority.

Mike says: 'Come and join us at this special celebration of the ICG and social care and of Keren's work. It will be a great get-together.

You will also have an opportunity to meet our new Chief Executive, Lisa Pickard and our new Operations Director, Beverley Proctor, as well as our volunteer Board of Directors, who serve us so well.'

The party will be held as follows:
Date: Friday 12th October
