Following 10 successful years, Heath Blake will be stepping down as CEO of national healthcare company Nurse Plus.
Heath started Nurse Plus in 2005 and has overseen the growth and development from just three to over 50 branches across the UK in that time. The company’s progress has been underlined by the recent investment from Sovereign Capital and shortlisting for a number of high profile industry awards.
A period of transition will see Heath working closely alongside new CEO, Paul Bingham, for the remainder of 2016. Paul’s previous experience includes roles as UK CEO of IT services provider Atos and Managing Director at Equiniti, specialists in financial and technology services.
Paul’s proven track record of building effective executive teams and driving growth in businesses will contribute to the continued success of Nurse Plus.
Post transition, Heath will continue to work closely with Nurse Plus as a Non-Executive Director and advisor.
Heath commented, “It has been a privilege to lead one of the UK’s fastest growing nursing agencies and after 10 years with the company it’s time to move on and transfer the Nurse Plus helm to a new generation of leadership.
“I look forward to working with Paul and the management team in my new role.”
New CEO Paul Bingham added, “I am delighted to be joining such a demonstrably successful business operating in a growth market. I want to congratulate Heath and the whole Nurse Plus team on their achievements to date and look forward to continuing that success.”
