Bay of Plenty District Health Board Chief Executive resigns

It is with regret that the Board of the Bay of Plenty District Health Board has accepted the resignation of the Chief Executive Mr Ron Dunham. Mr Dunham has been Chief Executive in this region for almost ten years and he has decided that it is time to explore other opportunities.

Mr Dunham has been Chief Executive during a time of change and challenge in health and the District Health Board. He has instigated the development of Project LEO and maintained the organisation during a period of rapid growth in the Western Bay of Plenty. The Board would like to publicly acknowledge its appreciation of the work achieved by Ron during his tenure as Chief Executive.

Mr Dunham will step down from his position with the District Health Board at the end of September.

Mary Hackett
Board Chair
