Announced late last year, Bolton Clarke acquired Allity in a deal that now sees the nonprofit expand its footprint to QLD, NSW, VIC and SA. Bolton Clark is now one of the largest aged care providers in the country with a portfolio of approximately 70 residential aged care homes, 36 retirement villages and 130,000 community care clients.
The nonprofit today announced two appointments to strengthen the board of directors following such a significant acquisition.
Associate Professor Beverley Rowbotham AO and Annabelle Chaplain AM bring deep clinical and financial expertise, as well as significant board experience.
Associate Professor Rowbotham has been an advisor at Bolton Clarke since 2019 and joined the board at the end of 2021. A medical doctor by training, Dr Rowbotham is an associate professor at the University of Queensland Medical School and currently holds various positions on the board and advisory, including Chairman of Australia’s largest medical insurance provider, Avant Mutual Group.
Ms. Chaplain is an accomplished non-executive director with extensive experience in the ASX-listed public, private and international sectors, including financial services, real estate and industrial services, and infrastructure. She is currently Chairman 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 an MBA from the University of Melbourne, a Bachelor of Arts Honors in Economics and Mandarin from Griffith University and a degree 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 of Directors as we move beyond the pandemic and pursue our growth strategy, including the recently announced acquisition of Allity,” he said.
“Bev and Annabelle both bring highly relevant skills that will be invaluable in ensuring Bolton Clarke’s services continue to meet community and individual needs and improve the quality of life for the people and communities we serve.”
