EP. Emmerton Park has announced that it has appointed Ian Adams as its chief executive officer, following the sudden passing of Robert Barden in September.
Mr Adams is the executive manager of business services at Huon Regional Care, having formerly been a chief operating officer and deputy CEO at Southern Cross Care in Hobart.
Prior to that, Mr Adams was chief financial officer at Masonic Homes in Launceston.
The chairman of Emmerton Park, Jonathan Smith, says that Mr Adams brings with him a wealth of experience in the aged care sector and has significant experience in both the financial and reporting obligations required in aged care.
“Mr Adams played a significant role in both strategic leadership and project managing very significant capital expansions, both at Southern Cross and Huon Regional Care.
“These experiences, together with his broad knowledge of aged care make Mr Adams an ideal appointment for Emmerton Park.”
Mr Adams will take up his position on December 4.
