St.LukesHealth Chairman, Mr Chris Dockray has announced Mr Paul Lupo will replace Mr Chris Williams as Chief Executive Officer after an exhaustive search for his replacement.
Mr Dockray paid tribute to Mr Williams who has worked for the organisation for 40 years, of which four were as CEO, and announced last year he would retire once a suitable replacement had been found for his position.
“The Board and I give thanks to Chris Williams for his 40 years of service,” Mr Dockray said. “During his time as CEO, Mr Williams cemented St.LukesHealth’s reputation as an award winning organisation for customer satisfaction and innovation and we wish him all the best for his retirement,” Mr Dockray said.
Mr Lupo has an extensive background in Tasmanian business, having worked with leading accounting firm KPMG for 12 years before taking roles as CEO with Petuna Seafood Group and Houston’s Farm – both significant players in their respective sectors.
Mr Dockray said Mr Lupo brings CEO experience as well as a great depth of skill in strategic and business planning to St.LukesHealth.
“The Board and I are extremely confident in his capacity to strengthen the culture of St.LukesHealth and lead the business into the future,” Mr Dockray said.
Mr Lupo said he was excited to join St.LukesHealth and looked forward to working closely with the Board and the highly dedicated staff of the organisation.
Mr Lupo will take the role from June 19, 2017.
