New ACC Chief Executive appointed


The Chief Executive of the Waikato District Health Board, Dr Jan White, will replace Garry Wilson as the Chief Executive of ACC when he retires in October this year.

Dr White has been Chief Executive of the Waikato District Health Board and its predecessor, Health Waikato Ltd, since March 1999. During those six years she has developed an enviable reputation, said ACC Chairman David Collins.

Dr White qualified as a medical practitioner in Western Australia and practised at the Royal Perth Hospital before embarking on a career in health administration. She held positions in the health sector in Western Australia and Victoria before her current position in Hamilton.

Dr Collins said a large number of outstanding candidates applied for the position and the Board of ACC was delighted by the quality of applications.

The Board is confident Dr White will build on the platform set in place by Garry Wilson, Dr Collins said.
