I was fortunate enough to attend the annual conference prior to joining and met many franchisees who are passionate about the brand and care in the community. I feel this is a fantastic brand working in the social care industry. Caremark has a great field-based support team in place and I can’t wait to join them in developing and strengthening franchisees’ businesses.”

They are both high-calibre individuals, fantastic additions to the Caremark team and I look forward to working with them. I know that our franchisees are keen to meet them as they get out into the network and meet people. I think these appointments show the investment we are making in supporting the network and our determination to drive the business forward.”
