Jim Kane will take over as CEO at Community Integrated Care.

One of Scotland’s largest social care charities has announced the appointment of its new chief executive officer.

Community Integrated Care confirmed this week that Jim Kane will become its new CEO. 

Since late 2019, Jim has served as the charity’s chief financial officer (CFO), and will succeed Mark Adams, who stepped down from his CEO role in September 2022.

Jim brings a wealth of leadership experience from the health and social care sector, having held director-level roles at Interserve Healthcare and Virgin Care prior to joining the charity.

In his three years as CFO he has navigated Community Integrated Care through some of its most challenging periods, including Covid-19 and the current cost-of-living crisis. 

He has also played a key role in the development of Best Lives Possible, the charity’s vision and strategic plan for the next five years.

Libby Raper, chair of Community Integrated Care’s board of trustees, said: “Throughout Jim’s time with our charity, he has demonstrated the incredible qualities that an organisation of our size, scale and ambition needs in its CEO – judgement, composure and vision. 

“Most importantly, his values have always been aligned with those of our charity and his decision-making has always reflected the best interests of our people.

“The board of trustees and I are confident that this appointment will see us take great strides towards the Best Lives Possible in the coming years and continue to influence the social care landscape at the highest level to drive reform and change in the sector.”

Jim said it was a “very proud moment” to be appointed CEO. 

He added: “The last three years have been a great honour, and I’m really looking forward to working alongside our exceptional people to deliver the next chapter of our organisation’s proud history.

“The challenges in our sector are well documented, and my focus from day one will be to face these head on to deliver the Best Lives Possible for the people we support and our colleagues.”
