New CEO Announced For ProCare

New CEO Announced For ProCare

ProCare, New Zealand’s largest PHO, today announced the appointment of Steve Boomert as its new CEO.

ProCare Health chairman Dr Peter Didsbury says he is thrilled the organisation has attracted such an experienced manager to lead its next phase of growth. “Steve Boomert has an exceptional track record of successfully championing change in large organisations. He has demonstrated strong business acumen and the ability to build collaborative relationships across complex industries.”

Boomert has more than two decades of experience in health and life insurance, healthcare and IT in the US, UK, Australia and New Zealand. During his five years as CEO of Tower Health & Life Insurance he drove a major turnaround of the company through rebuilding its service platform, revitalising its products and creating a performance culture. The result was a significant improvement in customer satisfaction and market share growth for the major subsidiary of the listed TOWER Group. He has spent the last two years as a management consultant leveraging his skills in strategy and change management.

“I feel health care is the number one economic issue for developed countries,” Boomert says, “and it is my belief this is best managed from the front end of the health system. ProCare has the scale, credibility and committed membership to deliver this well.”

Boomert is a former President of the NZ Health Funds Association and has held board positions with the Australian Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, NZ Investment Saving and Insurance Association, and the Insurance and Saving Ombudsman. He is a member of the NZ Institute of Directors. He is also a former general manager of Medibank, Australia’s largest private health insurer and provider of telehealth services.

He takes up his role on 18 February.
