National charity Revitalise today announce the appointment of Jan Tregelles as their Chief Executive Officer.
Jan joins Revitalise from Mencap where she has just stepped down as CEO after completing the first five-year phase of its Big Plan strategy.
Whilst at Mencap, Jan held various posts including the Director of Personal Support, and brings a variety of experience from regulated services to the wider social care agenda. Last year, Jan became Chair of the charity Access Your Right to Care, an organisation that secures access to justice for people with social care needs.
Mindy Sawhney, Chairman of Revitalise, said:
“We are delighted to have appointed Jan as our new Chief Executive Officer and welcome her wealth of knowledge to our team. It is an exciting time for the charity as we make bold changes in our holiday centres, improve the experience for our wonderful guests, and plan the future for our pioneering work.
“We thank our outgoing CEO Chris Simmonds for nearly a decade of service, he has been at the helm of our work defining what our service means to our guests, and delivering on that promise.”
Commenting on this opportunity, Jan said:
“Since stepping down from Mencap in the autumn I have been looking for an exciting new opportunity to use my background and skills. I was heartened by Revitalise’s warmth and passion for creating unforgettable holidays for disabled people and carers. And I’m delighted to have the chance to help them take their next innovative steps forward.”
