New Southern Cross Medical Care Society Board Appointment

Christchurch-based financial professional Catherine Drayton has been elected to the Board of the not-for-profit Southern Cross Medical Care Society, New Zealand’s largest health insurer with around 820,000 members.

Ms Drayton has served as the Partner in charge of the Assurance and Advisory practice of PricewaterhouseCoopers for Central and Eastern Europe (excluding the CIS) and has worked as a mergers and acquisitions specialist, principally in the manufacturing and energy sectors. She has significant multi-cultural, multi-jurisdictional managerial and transactional experience.

Ms Drayton brings an exceptionally strong record of governance experience. She is a Director of Christchurch International Airport Ltd, Ngai Tahu Holdings Corporation and BECA Group limited, as well as chairing the audit & risk committee of CERA (Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority), being on the University of Canterbury Council and being a director of the NZ Hockey Federation. Previously she has served on the boards of Meridian Energy Limited and Callaghan Innovation Research Limited (formerly Industrial Research Limited).

“Catherine has expertise in multi-cultural and multi-jurisdictional roles as well as significant managerial and transactional experience. This powerful combination will be a real asset to Southern Cross,” says Chairman Graeme Hawkins.

Ms Drayton replaces Phillip Meyer, who is retiring from the Board after an eleven year tenure.
