Ian Byers has spent the past couple of years setting up a sports management agency, 17 Management. Before that, he spent 12 years as part of Churchill Retirement Living’s senior management team and now he is back.
Based in the company’s regional head office in Byfleet, he joins Churchill’s operations board, alongside chairman & CEO Spencer McCarthy, son of John McCarthy of McCarthy & Stone fame.
Churchill Retirement Living turned over £190m in 2016 and now employs more than 500 staff across six UK offices.
Spencer McCarthy said: “I’m delighted to welcome Ian back to the Churchill board. His appointment comes at an unprecedented time of award wins and success for the group, but we still have plenty more to achieve. To do that we need the very best people and I am looking forward to working with Ian to achieve our goals for the southeast region in 2017.”
