Chief executive appointed to new Health Promotion Agency

Clive Nelson has been appointed as the first chief executive of the new Health Promotion Agency.

Mr Nelson is currently corporate strategy and communications manager for Watercare Services Limited. While in this role he was seconded to work alongside the executive chairman and board of the Auckland Transition Agency, managing communications and stakeholder relations during the creation of the Auckland Supercity.

Prior to this he worked for many years in newspapers – as a reporter, features editor and editor for UK and New Zealand titles, before becoming business manager of Fairfax’s Sunday Newspapers and general manager of the company’s national and specialist publishing group.

Mr Nelson will take up his new role when the Health Promotion Agency, created from the merger of the Alcohol Advisory Council of New Zealand and the Health Sponsorship Council, is established from 1 July 2012.

Dr Lee Mathias, chair of the Health Promotion Agency Establishment Board, says Mr Nelson will bring a fresh and valuable perspective to the new agency.

“It’s exciting to have someone with Clive’s skills and experience to build on the great work and achievements of the Alcohol Advisory Council of New Zealand and the Health Sponsorship Council.”

“Clive brings an impressive depth of strategic communications and change management experience to this role that will be advantageous as the new agency meets the challenge to deliver more innovative, high quality and cost-effective health promotion.”
