Jonathan Zenios is the new chair of Jewish Care - “the organisation I love” - succeeding Steven Lewis in September.
He brings to the post 25 years’ experience in the financial services industry and a host of communal involvements, including previous roles at Jewish Care as a trustee and treasurer.
Mr Zenios has also sat on the boards and committees of organisations including the Rosetrees Trust, the London Jewish Forum and Highgate Synagogue. He volunteers at North London Hospice.
He said he had always respected Jewish Care “for the crucial role it plays in Anglo-Jewish life.
“Jewish Care is lucky to have great senior executive leadership, a passionate workforce and, in Daniel Carmel-Brown, a CEO with the strategic vision that I am certain will cement our position as the care provider of choice for older people in the Jewish community for generations to come.
“The board will do all we can to support him, his directors and all the staff, in ensuring Jewish Care continues to aspire to the very highest standards of care for those who rely on us and to reach ever more people in the community.”
In other changes, Mr Lewis will become the charity’s president, with the current incumbent, Lord Levy, appointed Jewish Care’s first life president.
