The Chair of the Bay of Plenty District Health Board (BOPDHB) Sally Webb has announced the appointment of Helen Mason to the role of CEO of the organisation.
“The Board is delighted to announce Helen Mason as the CEO replacing incumbent Phil Cammish who is retiring on 29 January 2016 after 10 years in the role,” said Sally Webb. “Phil has made a valuable contribution to both the Bay of Plenty DHB and the community we serve, in his role as Chief Executive. He should be proud of the progress this DHB has made under his leadership.”
“Helen brings with her not only strong knowledge and experience with the BOPDHB, but also her recent experience as a Harkness Fellow where she had the opportunity to expand her skill set internationally.
“Helen is no stranger to the BOPDHB having been with us for 17 years working in a number of roles, most recently as the General Manager Innovation and Special Projects and formerly as Chief Operating Officer and General Manager Planning and Funding.
“The Board is excited about the future of health in the Bay of Plenty with Helen leading an executive team and staff of experienced and dedicated people. The Bay of Plenty District Health Board is well positioned to lead health developments not only in the Bay of Plenty but also nationally,” said Sally Webb.
