Our people

Our Corporate Team

Louise Parrott Bates, Chief Executive Officer

“I have worked in the Health and Social Care sector for over 28 years. As a qualified social worker with a background of older people’s and children’s’ services and latterly disability services.
I am passionate about improving services for people with disabilities and have spent the majority of my career dedicated to this at Pure Innovations.”


Judith Hutton, Director of Human Resources

“I have had a long and fulfilling career in human resource management working in both the public and private sectors.  My previous employers include BUPA, NHS,  Chartered Accountants, Government and housing.  I joined Pure Innovations in 2005, excited by the prospect of setting up a HR department from scratch and working for an innovative, dynamic organisation that had recently transferred out of local authority control.  I job-share the HR Director role  and am proud to work for a supportive company that enables its employees to work flexibly and creatively.  I am a fellow of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD).” 


Dave Ferrier, Operations Director
My time with Pure started in 2005 as an Employment Officer on the Stockport Learning Disability Team, working on many different teams up to 2012 when I became the General Manager of Employment and then Head of Operations. I am passionate about us making sure our clients are kept at the heart of everything we do as we practise the 2 c’s – Communication and Contribution. I am incredibly proud to lead the operational delivery of Pure Innovations and be part of everything for which our organisation stands.

Our team have access to an internal intranet system where you can find what is happening and access our filestore of information and documents.

My experience has included, accounts preparation, full cost recovery in a manufacturing environment, involved in the purchase and disposal of various companies, been part of a client team on various PFI projects and have been Finance Director of an environmental charity.
