“Dr Snee will bring a rich background in the key aspects of health experience management to Hawke’s Bay.

He has proven ability and success as a Chief Executive and will be an asset to the DHB and the community,” said HBDHB Commissioner, Sir John Anderson,

Dr Snee, his wife Ann and their three children aged eight, six and four will emigrate to New Zealand in October and he will take up the position at the DHB at that time.
