Announced late last year, Bolton Clarke acquired Allity in a deal that now sees the not-for-profit expand its footprint across QLD, NSW, VIC and SA. Bolton Clarke is now one of the largest aged care providers in the country, with a portfolio in the vicinity of 70 residential aged care homes, 36 retirement villages and 130,000 community care clients.
The not-for-profit has today announced two appointments designed to strengthen the board following such a significant acquisition.
Associate Professor Beverley Rowbotham AO and Annabelle Chaplain AM bring deep clinical and financial expertise, along with significant board experience.
Associate Professor Rowbotham has been an advisor at Bolton Clarke since 2019, joining the Board in late 2021. A medical doctor by training, Dr Rowbotham is an Associate Professor of The University of Queensland School of Medicine and currently holds various board and advisory roles, including chair of Australia’s largest medical indemnity insurance provider Avant Mutual Group.
Ms Chaplain is an accomplished non-executive director with extensive experience across ASX-listed, public, private and international sectors including in financial services, property and industrial services and infrastructure. She is currently chair of MFF Capital Investments Ltd and Canstar Pty Ltd and is also a director of Seven Group Holdings Ltd, Super Retail Group Ltd and the Australian Ballet.
She is a Fellow of the Australian Institute of Company Directors and holds a Master of Business Administration from Melbourne University, a Bachelor of Arts majoring in Economics and Mandarin from Griffith University and a Diploma from the Securities Institute of Australia.
Bolton Clarke Chairman Pat McIntosh said he was pleased to welcome both to the Bolton Clarke Board.
“These appointments will further support the work of the Board as we move beyond the pandemic and continue with our growth strategy, including the recently-announced acquisition of Allity,” he said.
“Both Bev and Annabelle bring highly relevant skills which will be invaluable in ensuring Bolton Clarke’s services continue to respond to community and individual needs and improve quality of life for the people and communities we serve”.
