Kingsley Healthcare founders Daya and Sumi Thayan are today (September 23) thrilled to welcome their elder son Cameron into the business in the company’s 20th anniversary year.
His initial focus as an executive director will be to work alongside Kingsley’s head office team to learn different aspects of the business.
He said: “In my first six months, I will be looking to gain a broad understanding of how all the company’s departments operate so I gradually learn the intricacies of the business.
“I am proud of the good work done by my parents and their senior colleagues in supporting the different businesses we operate across the country.
“I am pleased to be part of a vibrant and hard-working group who have a passion for making a difference to the lives of our residents. I will do everything to work with them and be part of Kingsley’s winning team.”
Cameron graduated from Durham University with an honours degree in accounting and finance.
He is coming on board after gaining experience through his years at KPMG London and the leading renewable investment and asset management house NextEnergy Capital, having worked closely with the CEO and senior team.
Cameron is also training to be a chartered accountant.
In his new role at Kingsley, he will work closely with Group Operations Director Debbie McGovern and CFO Ian Jarvis and his team.
CEO Daya Thayan said: “Sumi and I have asked Cameron to reflect on the family values of kindness, compassion and empathy and also to devote enough time on our philanthropy efforts working with our charity, The Lotus Children’s Foundation.
“It is a great day for Sumi and I to have our elder son Cameron joining us, and it is also an important statement about Kingsley’s succession planning going forward.”
