A Leamington-based charity that supports older people across Warwickshire has appointed a new chief executive.
Jane Davies has taken over at the helm of Age UK Warwickshire, which has its head office in Clemens Street, from Elizabeth Phillips MBE, who recently retired after 25 years’ service at the charity.
Born in Stourbridge but living in Pembrokeshire since a small child, Jane comes with more than 15 years’ experience as chief officer of Age Cymru Pembrokeshire, a smaller Age UK based in Wales, and therefore has many years of experience understanding the needs of older people and their carers.
She said: “I am looking forward to moving back to the West Midlands now with my own family and working with the wonderful team of staff and volunteers at Age UK Warwickshire - to build and strengthen relationships and to develop exciting opportunities for the charity and older people in Warwickshire.”
