Mel Knight steps down as Executive Chairman enabling Executive Team to take the lead
Craig Currie and Mel Knight

After more than 25 years at the helm, Mel Knight stepped down as Executive Chairman of Castleoak at the end of March 2018.

Over the past five years, the shareholders have led a succession plan to evolve the business from a shareholder led business to one led by an independent management team.

The implementation of the succession plan is now complete, and Craig Currie, Chief Executive, and his team have been leading the company for some time.

Karen Rosser now steps up from Non-Executive Director to Non-Executive Chair.  Karen has been part of the senior team since 2011, having joined Castleoak in an HR leadership role.

Mel remains a major shareholder in Castleoak.

Mel will now be pursuing a range of other interests in the care and retirement living sector.

“Castleoak is well positioned for further success and growth, and importantly to serve customers very well” said Mel.

“Craig and his team are confidently leading the company. As Castleoak evolves, our values endure. Excellence, respect, integrity and collaboration are how we’ve always done business.  Creating quality living space for customers and their residents remains our goal” he added.
