In July 2016, Quadrant Private Equity announced a joint venture with RACWA to form Home Care Holdings. In its initial stage Home Care Holdings incorporated a Home Care business (St Ives Home Care) and an Allied Health business (Injury Treatment Pty Ltd - a leading national supplier of workplace rehabilitation and ancillary clinical and prevention services in Australia).
In August 2017, Allura Partners was introduced by the Managing Partner of Quadrant to the Group Chief Executive Officer of Home Care Holdings, Nobert Walther. This introduction was to conduct an executive search to secure a Chief Executive to lead Generation Health, a newly formed division of Home Care Holdings incorporating the Injury Treatment business.
As part of the extensive search to identify and engage proven healthcare CEO’s, Phillipa Blakey, former CEO of Pulse Health was identified. During her tenure as CEO of the ASX listed private hospital operator, Pulse Health, Phillipa doubled earnings and grew the operations from 6 facilities to 13. By successfully executing the growth strategy, Phillipa ensured a strongly contested trade sale, ultimately won by Healthe Care Australia Ltd.
Based on her strong track record of industry specific execution and results, Phillipa was the standout candidate in a strong shortlist. In November 2017, Phillipa commenced as the new CEO of Generation Health.
Below is a testimonial from Norbert Walther, Group Chief Executive Officer of Home Care Holdings:
“Thanks Adrian and team for an excellent bespoke service to recruit a new CEO for Generation Health! From the start through to delivery I very much appreciated you developing an in-depth understanding of our business needs, your responsiveness and speed in sourcing great candidates and your individualised advice to bring the best candidate on board.
It has been a true pleasure working with you all!”
