Dementia care provider with Wigan bases appoints a new chief executive
Specialist dementia care provider Belong has appointed a new chief executive, to lead the organisation which operates two care villages in Atherton and Wigan.
Martin Rix joins from Norse Care, which is based in Norfolk, where he was chief operating officer, and responsible for services in 36 care homes and housing with care schemes.
The company says he will bring to the role his experience of overseeing specialist dementia and nursing settings and managing operations, and extensive insight into development projects and property consultancy, as a chartered surveyor and civil engineering graduate.
Mr Rix said: “Belong villages are a leading light within the sector, making a significant contribution to driving standards and creating opportunities, particularly for people with dementia.
“It is a very exciting time to be joining the organisation, and I’m looking forward to working alongside an incredibly dedicated and talented team, as we continue to innovate into the future.”
