The team behind the scenes

CHRIS

Chris Hopkinson Managing Director

In 2007 Chris was asked if he would utilise his experience in mergers and acquisitions gained in the plastics, foam and rubber industry to assist Eldercare create a joint venture with ‘Help the Aged’ as the two companies merged their pendant alarm services. Whilst he was only planning on staying for a short time, the company did not let him leave and he now finds himself leading one of the UK’s largest assistive technology service providers.

As a scientist by background (M.A. in Chemistry (Oxon)) and with an Masters in Business Administration plus extensive business experience acquired over more years than he cares to acknowledge, Chris is ideally suited to direct and develop Eldercare in their provision of 21st century care.

He has also hand-selected a management team with both the skills and experience to provide expert support to Eldercare’s customers and clients.

Sue Hawksworth Marketing Director

Sue met Chris whilst studying for a Politics, Philosophy and Economics degree at St. Anne’s College, Oxford and joined Eldercare in 2012. After 23 years marketing some of the nation’s favourite food and beverage brands for Nestlé, the unique world of assistive technology is a very different challenge.

“Before I joined Eldercare I did not even know that this market existed. With the same being true for so many people in the UK, raising category awareness is as important as driving brand awareness. The more people know about technology-enabled care services, the more likely it is that people will find the expert help that Eldercare can provide.”
