Following its purchase last month, Tanarra Capital has appointed senior BCG and Proximity advisors Aliza Knox and Glenys Beauchamp to the board of aged care firm Health Metrics.

Aged care sector solutions provider Health Metrics has welcomed two senior consulting advisors to its board; Aliza Knox, former vice president and director at Boston Consulting Group in Sydney and Singapore, and Glenys Beauchamp, presently a principal advisor at public sector professional services firm Proximity.

The board appointments follow last month’s majority investment into Health Metrics by Australasian alternative asset manager Tanarra Capital.

Presently a part-time senior advisor with BCG, Knox previously served at the management firm for twelve years from around the time of its founding in Australia, responsible for its Asian Financial Services practice as a vice president and director. Since then she has held many senior leadership roles across the region, including as APAC VP for Twitter and Online Sales and Operations managing director for Google. She is also a board member at Grant Thornton International.

Meanwhile, Beauchamp has been serving as a principal advisor with Canberra-based consulting, legal and commercial advisory solutions provider Proximity since retiring from a lengthy public service career last year – including positions as Co-ordinator General in the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet and as Secretary of the Commonwealth Department of Health. She appeared several times before the Royal Commission into Aged Care in the latter role.

Last week’s budget saw the Federal Government finally respond to the commission’s finding with a four-year, $17.7 billion aged care package; a boon to Health Metrics, which provides a suite of enterprise solution software geared toward aged care. No doubt this was a driving factor in Tanarra’s recent purchase (advised on by BDO on the buy-side, with PwC in the sale corner), as well as the fresh board appointments with significant tech and healthcare experience.

“Aliza has relevant experience in optimising operations and customer engagement for fast-growth technology businesses and will especially assist Health Metrics in scaling to become a world-class software business,” Tanarra Capital said in a statement, adding on Beauchamp that; “Glenys’ experience and skill set will be vital for Health Min realising its ambition to improve the quality of care outcomes across the aged care sector.”

While Knox’s BCG was one of the big benefactors in federal government consulting largesse last year, Beauchamp’s current employer Proximity was established in 2011 by ex-DLA Piper senior associates James Dunn and Sean King to serve the government and regulated industry sectors. Its consulting offering is geared around four lines; governance, work health and safety, digital, data and cybersecurity, and benefits realisation.
