A new Chief Executive Officer has been appointed for the NHS Business Services Authority (NHSBSA).
Michael Brodie, who is currently Finance and Commercial Director at Public Health England (PHE), will take over from current CEO Alistair McDonald when he retires this summer.
Michael has extensive experience at Board level and across the public service and held the role of Finance Director at the NHSBSA before taking up his current post at Public Health England in April 2013.
Silla Maizey, Chair of the NHSBSA Board, said: “I’m delighted to announce Michael as the new Chief Executive Officer for the NHSBSA. His leadership skills and his enthusiasm for our business and our people came through very clearly during the recruitment process.
“Michael is well-regarded within the wider health and care system and has a proven track record. He has the relevant expertise, experience and values to lead the NHSBSA and I am confident he will help us achieve our vision of being the delivery partner of choice for the NHS.
“I would also like to thank our outgoing CEO, Alistair McDonald, for his hard work and dedication over the last two years in transforming the strategic direction of the NHSBSA and raising our profile at a national level.”
Commenting on his appointment, Michael Brodie said: “Leaving PHE will a difficult decision as it is an outstanding organisation doing astonishing things at the heart of government. However, I am genuinely thrilled to be returning to the NHSBSA as Chief Executive as it is an organisation with a special place in my heart. I have admired the transformation that has been undertaken in the last couple of years and am profoundly excited by the opportunities ahead. I feel privileged to be appointed as its new leader and I am looking forward to meeting everyone and continuing the excellent work the NHSBSA does for patients, the public and the taxpayer.”
