Title :Group Chief Executive

Mark Heasman was appointed as Group Chief Executive of Provide in September 2020, having served as a part-time non-executive director since 2014.

He has worked in a dozen global corporations, and has now turned his knowledge and skill to the health and social care sector. His corporate experience means that he can state with confidence that charity and commercial are a perfect fit.

Mark says, “Provide is an outstanding organisation. As a not-for-profit, we can deliver an exciting collision of commercial dexterity and care. Our mission is to ‘Transform Lives through Care, Innovation and Compassion,’ and I believe we do that every day. Our mission and values have been tested over the last two years, and the outcomes have been beyond anything I could have asked or hoped for. Investment in our people, the way we work, and the organisations we work with across the NHS and care sector enable us to deliver that care, innovation and compassion even in a rapidly changing landscape.”
