Retirement sector leader joins Winton


Winton is delighted to welcome Julian Cook to the team to lead our new Luxury Later Living retirement offering, Northbrook.

Julian is no stranger to the sector after working at Summerset Group for 11 years, initially as Chief Financial Officer and subsequently appointed as Chief Executive Officer in 2014. Summerset had less than 2,000 residents when Julian joined Summerset and by the time he left, it was the second-largest retirement village operator with over 6,000 residents.

Chris Meehan, Winton CEO, said, “we couldn’t be happier Julian has joined the Winton team. We are incredibly excited about Northbrook’s entrance into the retirement space, and Julian’s involvement will ensure the execution of the strategy aligns with the vision.”

Northbrook, Luxury Later Living, offers a premium lifestyle in exquisite locations and a new vision for retirement living. Julian has been appointed as a Director of Winton Property Limited and he will also oversee the Northbrook strategy and advise on critical aspects to deliver a retirement offering that meets the needs of a growing high-end segment of the retirement market.

Julian Cook said, “the high-end Northbrook retirement offering will be well received from a growing segment of the market which is not currently well served. I look forward to working with Winton to deliver market-leading retirement communities, delivering luxury for the later living years.”
