Nick Sanderson is the founder and CEO of Audley Group.
In the 1980’s he founded, operated and then sold Beaumont Healthcare, one of the first corporate providers of private pay nursing care homes. In 1986, that company created close care housing which offered independent living to older people in their own homes adjacent to a Beaumont care home.
Nick created Audley to develop a portfolio of private retirement villages. The first two award winning schemes in Tunbridge Wells and Harrogate were completed by 2004. Audley now has a portfolio of 20 villages with 2000 properties and 2500 customers.
As one of the founders of the retirement village sector in the UK, Nick is a regular speaker at national and international conferences and a contributor to several publications. He has acted as an advisor to public and private sector organisations and is Chairman of ARCO (Associated Retirement Community Operators) the UK’s representative body.
