Board of the Rehab Group Appoints Mr. Jimmy Tolan as new Chairman

The Board of the Rehab Group has announced the appointment of Mr Jimmy Tolan as its new Chairman, following the untimely death in November 2015 of Mr. Sean Egan.

Mr. Tolan is currently the Chairman of Carechoice Group, a provider of residential services to older people. He has previously served as Head of Healthcare Advisory with PwC, as Chief Executive of VHI Healthcare and as Chief Executive Officer of Fyffes PLC.

Speaking following his appointment, Mr Tolan said, “I am delighted and honoured to have been chosen to chair the Board of the Rehab Group at a time when the charity is undergoing a period of transformation. The implementation of a new Five-year Strategic Plan published in 2015 sets out an ambitious new vision, a strong mission and a set of important core values for the organisation. It will be important that the organisation is fully equipped from a strategic and governance perspective to enable it to fulfil its mission which is to support people with disabilities and others who are disadvantaged, to achieve their goals in life. I look forward to working with the Chief Executive and the Board to achieve this”.

Speaking following the appointment, Mo Flynn, Rehab Group’s Chief Executive said, “We are delighted that Jimmy Tolan has joined us, bringing a wealth of experience to the role of Chairman of the Rehab Group. Rehab’s new Strategic Plan sets a strong course for the future of the charity, and with his record in the management and strategic leadership of major Irish companies, Jimmy will provide strong leadership at Board level. I very much look forward to working with him”.

The Chairperson of Rehab Group is a voluntary, unpaid role. Mr. Tolan will lead a 14-member Board.
