Following its purchase last month, Tanarra Capital appointed BCG and Proximity senior advisers Aliza Knox and Glenys Beauchamp to the board of directors of senior care company Health Metrics.
Seniors care solutions provider Health Metrics has welcomed two senior advisors to its board of directors; Aliza Knox, former vice president and director of the Boston Consulting Group in Sydney and Singapore, and Glenys Beauchamp, currently senior advisor at the public sector professional services firm Proximity.
The board appointments follow last month’s majority investment in Health Metrics by Australian alternative asset manager Tanarra Capital.
Currently a part-time senior advisor at BCG, Knox worked at the management company for around twelve years when it was founded in Australia, responsible for its Asian financial services practice as vice president and director. Since then, she has held a number of leadership roles in the region, including serving as APAC vice president for Twitter and general manager of online sales and operations for Google. She is also a member of the Board of Directors of Grant Thornton International.
During this time, Beauchamp has served as a senior advisor at Proximity, a Canberra-based business, legal and advisory solutions provider since retiring from a long career in the public service last year – including general coordinator positions. at the Ministry of the Prime Minister and the Cabinet. and as Secretary of the Commonwealth Health Department. She has appeared several times before the Royal Commission on the Care of the Elderly in the latter role.
Last week’s budget saw the federal government finally respond to the commission’s findings with a four-year, $ 17.7 billion senior care program; a godsend for Health Metrics, which provides a suite of enterprise software solutions geared towards senior care. This has undoubtedly been a factor in the recent purchase of Tanarra (advised by BDO on the buy side, with PwC in the sell corner), as well as the new board appointments with significant technology and healthcare experience.
“Aliza has relevant experience in optimizing operations and customer engagement for fast growing technology companies and will particularly help Health Metrics evolve into a world class software company,” Tanarra Capital said in a statement. , adding to Beauchamp that; “Glenys’ experience and skills will be essential for Health Min to achieve its ambition to improve the quality of care outcomes in the elderly care sector. “
While Knox BCG was one of the big benefactors of the federal government’s consultation largesse last year, Beauchamp’s current employer, Proximity, was created in 2011 by former DLA Piper senior partners, James Dunn. and Sean King, to serve government and regulated industry sectors. Its consultancy offer is structured around four lines; governance, occupational health and safety, digital, data and cybersecurity, and profit realization.
