New Mater Group Executive structure

Monday 16 April 2018

A recent restructure of key leadership roles at Mater has been announced to create a smaller, more agile group structure to strengthen Mater’s Ministries of Health, Education, Research and Foundation.

The most notable change is  the creation of a Health Executive, comprising the five clinical stream leads, and bringing the Chief Medical Officer and Chief Nursing and Midwifery Officer as well as Clinical Support Services (including Pathology, Medical Imaging, Pharmacy) together under the Mater Health portfolio.  These positions all report through to Mater Health Chief Executive Officer, Sean Hubbard.   

This structure creates a strong Health Executive, with significant expertise and experience in complex healthcare.  With the formation of a Health Executive, the role and function of the Clinical Council will also be considered and an update will be provided in the coming months.

Alongside these changes, there are some additional changes to the Business Lead positions for Mater Health:

  • Luke van Luik (currently Director of Business, Neurosciences) will transition to Surgical/Acute Care Services as Associate Director of Business, reporting to Chris Sullivan
  • Dan Axelson (currently Director of Business, Cancer Care) will assume responsibility for the Neurosciences portfolio in addition to Cancer Care.
