Adam Sullivan of Crewe based Baywater Healthcare has been shortlisted for this year’s UK Private Business Awards in the CEO of the Year category. Baywater Healthcare provide home based therapies on behalf of the NHS for patients with long term respiratory conditions. Adam led a management buyout of the healthcare division of Air Products plc in 2013 supported by London based private equity firm Duke Street. Since the buyout the business has seen a significant growth in turnover thanks to diversification in new services for patients with Sleep disorders and developing innovative remote managed solutions for monitoring patients in their homes, which significantly reduces unplanned hospital admissions.
Following his nomination Adam commented “I’m immensely proud to be representing my team in the finals. We have some incredible business leaders in the UK, many of whom have been a source of inspiration to me. This process showcases those who strive to create companies that offer their customers a truly engaging experience.”
Charismatically leading from the front, Adam inspires, engages and celebrates the success in his colleagues regardless of an employee’s position. Everyone adds value in Adam’s view. High levels of discipline, strong ethics and values are qualities which he embodies and expects of his team.
Now in their seventh year, the award sponsored by professional services network PwC are positioned to recognise success and achievement within the vast number of private businesses in the UK. Being presented to the UK’s most successful private companies, entrepreneurs and management teams, the Awards are often referred to as “The Diamonds”. The awards will be announced at an event in London in Mid-September.
