Shaun Swanepoel joins team at pivotal time in company's growth
Retirement living provider, Audley Group, the UK’s leading provider of retirement villages, has announced the appointment of Shaun Swanepoel as its new group financial director.
With a wealth of financial experience honed over 15 years in the industry, he joins Audley Group from his previous role as director of finance and accounting at MSC Cruise Management, having also held senior roles at EY.
As financial director, Swanepoel will work closely with Gary Burton, chief financial officer, to help drive Audley Group’s growth plans and the group’s strategic financial direction.
His appointment comes at a pivotal time for the business with the opening of its first Mayfield Village in Watford this autumn, alongside two more Audley Village openings taking place this year.
Accessible to both property owners and the neighbouring communities, the villages offer extensive leisure facilities including a library, restaurant and bar, swimming pool and health club, with flexible wellbeing and care support services available on site.
Swanepoel said: “I am thrilled to be joining Audley, a business that is a leader in its sector and at a strategically-important moment in its growth aspirations.
“The Audley and Mayfield offerings are answering a growing need in the market and are exactly what is required if we are to meet the rising demands of our ageing population.”
