‘Old hands’ James Grealy and Rob Hankins establish ‘hands on’ aged care consultancy

Published on

Ex CEO of Aquarius Aged Care, James Grealy, and Ex CEO of ECH, Rob Hankins, have teamed up to launch Tierra Health, an aged care management consulting firm.

Grealy successfully sold Aquarius, a private operator of nine residential facilities with 551 beds, to Opal early last year.

Hankins, who is responsible for Business Development, called ‘time’ at ECH after 14 years as CEO.

They offer a unique consulting service. They say:

Unlike the majority of aged care consultants, we’re prepared to assume the Key Personnel role in your team when engaged by you. The advantages of this:

  • We share the risk and accept full accountability for our management services.
  • We become part of your team, adopting your organisation’s values and culture.
  • We are not ‘preaching’ from up-high; we’re ‘getting our hands dirty’ with you.
