New Leadership Team for Southern Cross

New Leadership Team for Southern Cross

A new leadership team has been appointed at Southern Cross.

Effective 1 July 2014, Peter Tynan will become CEO - Southern Cross Medical Care Society (the health insurance business), Terry Moore will become CEO - Southern Cross Health Trust (owner of the hospitals, travel insurance, primary care and pet insurance businesses), and Rachel Cunningham will be appointed CEO - Corporate Office (including corporate affairs, legal and secretariat).

This follows the announcement made in December 2013 that Dr Ian McPherson will step down as Group Chief Executive Officer after 12 years at the helm. He will continue however at Southern Cross for a further year (until 30 June 2015), working part-time with the Chairman and Board on health sector and strategic matters, and to enable a well-planned and smooth transition.

The Board is pleased that the appointment of experienced Southern Cross executives to these positions will support a seamless transition, providing stability and continuity.
