Change of role title for Neil Heslop

Tēnā koutou,

At its Board meeting on 4 August the Southern Hearing Charitable Trust Board unanimously approved a change in role title from General Manager to Chief Executive for Neil Heslop. For administrative simplicity, the change has been backdated to be effective from 1 July 2020.

Neil was appointed General Manager in May 2011 and over the last nine years the size and complexity of the Southern Cochlear Implant Programme has changed significantly.

This change in title more accurately reflects the current and future demands of Neil’s role as the operational leader of the Programme. It confirms the mana of the role and the confidence that the Board has in Neil’s continued leadership.

Ngā mihi nui,

David Kent
Board Chair
