Sodexo, the France-based multinational hospitality company, has made it to the headlines for its acquisition of The Good Care Group, the leading UK-based home care services provider.
Authentic reports state that the latest acquisition will help Sodexo, which has presence in the UK market through Prestige Nursing + Care, in expanding its operations further and also meeting the preferences and needs of consumers by offering high-quality live-in care services. Already armed with the expertise of tailoring care for individuals suffering from dementia or other similar specialist conditions, Sodexo’s expansion in UK seems to be certain with this takeover, claim people familiar with the knowledge of the matter.
Subsequent to the acquisition, Jonathan Bruce, who is the current Managing Director at Prestige Nursing + Care, is expected to become the CEO for Sodexo’s home care business in the United Kingdom, with Belinda Berkeley as the Managing Director, who is currently the Managing Director at The Good Care Group. Sources close to the development cite that the duo is likely to lead the strategic development of Sodexo’s expanded business. Dominique Kent, who is currently the COO at The Good Care Group, will be leading the continued growth of the company as the Managing Director and remain as the Vice Chairperson of the UK Home Care Association.
Sarosh Mistry, the Chief Executive Officer at Sodexo Home Care Worldwide, was recently quoted saying that Sodexo and The Good Care Group are on a common mission to help their consumers grow older in their homes in a highly independent and comfortable manner. The latest cultural alignment is essential to Sodexo as well as its core values, which make The Good Care Group a perfect fit into the Worldwide Home Care business of Sodexo. He further commented that both the companies have combined prospects to endow consumers with complex care needs, with select home care solutions.
