Kenneth is a Chartered Accountant with 40 years of business leadership experience, last 9 in healthcare. In 2005, Kenneth led the acquisition of Independent Living Services (ILS), Scotland’s largest independent domiciliary care provider (home care). Kenneth grew this business by acquisition and put in place a new senior management team before exiting via a disposal to a private equity house.
Prior to his involvement with ILS, Kenneth negotiated the proposed acquisition of a large UK independent living business in a JV with the large US care home operator, Sunrise Senior Living, as they looked to enter the UK market. Significant work was done researching the UK healthcare market and he led the due diligence on the business. Kenneth’s experience from this exercise and contacts with the CEO of a REIT in the US was a key reason why he went on to found the Kames Target Healthcare Property Unit Trust.
Preceding his involvement in the healthcare sector, Kenneth has owned businesses in the publishing, IT, shipping and accountancy sectors and he holds a number of pro-bono charitable roles.
