New Managing Director to lead Tanglewood through expansion

A care group in Lincolnshire has appointed an interim Managing Director as the company continues to grow.

Tanglewood Care Homes has appointed Julie Wright RMN, BSc (Hons) Gerontological Nursing as its new Managing Director.

Tanglewood Care Homes was founded in 1989 and is an independent, family-run business.

Julie has 38 years’ experience in the social care sector. She has worked with Tanglewood over the last 18 months in her capacity as an adviser through the company she founded, Wright Care Solutions, a specialist care home advisory company based in East Yorkshire.

Julie said: “Tanglewood Care Homes is a great, reputable organisation.

“It puts the care of its residents and staff at the heart of what it does. I’m really looking forward to working with the board and the senior leadership team, particularly as the company is heading through a period of growth.

“My focus is to provide effective leadership to the executive team and ensure we deliver the highest standards of care throughout all Tanglewood homes.”

As well as having long established care homes throughout Lincolnshire, in Spalding, Boston, Horncastle, Coningsby and Alford, Tanglewood is set to open a new purpose-built care home on Long Leys Road in Lincoln, in February 2019.

The company’s founder Tracy Ann Shelbourn added: “I’m absolutely delighted that Julie agreed to join our team.

“I’m confident that her appointment will underpin our platform for growth over the coming months. Her role will provide exceptional leadership and ensure our senior executive team is travelling in the same direction.”
