Community Integrated Care Appoints New Chief Executive Officer
Community Integrated Care is delighted to announce the appointment of Mark Adams as its new Chief Executive Officer.
Mark, who has over 35 years of healthcare leadership experience both nationally and internationally, joined our charity on 4th September 2017. He replaces Phil Pegler, who completes his 12-month tenure as Interim CEO.
Mark joins Community Integrated Care from Dubai, where he successfully designed and launched an innovative healthcare management business, Anglo Arabian Healthcare (AAH). Comprising an integrated network of 40 clinics, diagnostic centres, hospitals and pharmacies, AAH also included state-of-the-art greenfield hospitals and pioneering secondary care facilities dedicated to women's health and medical oncology.
In his role as CEO, Mark secured an $80m investment that allowed AAH to grow to become the 5th largest healthcare operator in the country, and launched a joint venture with the renowned Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago, specialising in Embryology and IVF.
Throughout his career, Mark has demonstrated exceptional leadership and team-building skills for a wide range of leading healthcare companies, including Denplan, AXA PPP, Virgin Healthcare and Netcare UK, driving successful negotiations, partnerships, increasing company revenue and launching exciting new initiatives.
Dame Joan Stringer, Chair of Community Integrated Care’s Board of Trustees, says: “As we look to develop our strategic direction over the coming years, we have been committed to finding a leader who not only has the right experience, but the right passion and values too.”
Dame Joan continues: “Mark is highly respected within the care sector and throughout the recruitment process, he demonstrated an exciting vision for our charity, underpinned by strong values and ambitious, innovative thinking.”
“I am very confident that we have found not only an exceptional leader in Mark, but someone who will be a great fit for Community Integrated Care.”
Mark Adams says: “I am delighted to be joining Community Integrated Care, which is an exemplar organisation in the provision of quality-focused care. I am humbled to become part of a 6,000 strong team at a time of great change and challenge that is facing the social care sector in the UK.”
Mark adds: “I am really looking forward to building the next chapter in Community Integrated Care’s incredible 30-year journey. Hopefully, in our own small way, we can help shape the national care agenda by sharing our incredible experience and expertise with those who are building sustainable plans for the UK’s vulnerable and ageing population.”
