Medibank has today announced changes to its executive leadership team. Felicia Trewin will be appointed Group Lead – Data & Technology and Robert Read will be appointed Group Lead – Amplar Health. The latter follows Dr Andrew Wilson’s decision to step back from the executive leadership team and take on the role of Group Chief Medical Officer in a part time capacity.
Medibank CEO David Koczkar said:
“I am excited to be welcoming Felicia and Rob to the executive leadership team. Together we are well positioned to grow and to deliver on our 2030 vision to achieve the best health and wellbeing for Australia.
“Felicia brings with her significant experience in technology, large program delivery, security and transformation in financial services.
“Rob joined Medibank last year and has broad experience in health including delivering customer led strategies, driving business growth and operational management.
“Together Felicia and Rob will be instrumental in helping us continue to deliver for our customers.
“I am also very pleased Andrew will continue to contribute to our company after making the decision to step back from the executive leadership team after 13 years and take on the role of our Group Chief Medical Officer.
“Andrew has been fundamental in our transformation to a health company. I would like to thank Andrew for his contribution to Medibank and am personally looking forward to continuing to work with him in his new role as Group Chief Medical Officer.”
