Borough Care is delighted to introduce our new Head of Finance, Nick Pennell. Nick joined us in autumn and is responsible for managing our finance team, updating our financial processes and capabilities, and helping us to improve efficiency, through the introduction of new technology and systems.
Nick joins Borough Care from KPMG, one of the Big Four accounting firms. His most recent role was Deputy Finance Director of KPMG Learning Services.
Commenting on what attracted him to Borough Care, Nick says: “The care sector as a whole is facing many challenges, especially in regards to number of beds, local authority funding and aging infrastructure. Borough Care’s leadership team is aware of the issues facing the sector and has ambitious plans to address these challenges. There is a key role for the Head of Finance to shape some of the thinking around funding, investment decisions and growth plans. The opportunity to help do this really appealed to me. This position also means I can use my skills in the area of finance transformation.”
Nick continues: “I see Borough Care is a forward thinking, innovative company; characteristics which match my own values. I’m looking forward to helping the business continue growing.”
Outside of work, Nick loves to spend time in the garden of his home in Peak District, especially when joined by his wife and two cats. He also loves walking, camping, eating, ‘Dad’ jokes, 70’s music and playing his guitar ‘badly’.
