Carrie-Anne Leeson, former MD of Health Futures and currently CEO of Lifeline ACT, is the new President of Workplace Health Association Australia (WHAA). Carrie was unanimously supported into the new role by the incoming WHAA Board following the organisation’s recent Annual General Meeting.
Carrie has been a long serving Executive member of WHAA – and formerly HAPIA – and is enthusiastically looking forward to the challenges of her new position.
“It is an absolute privilege to take on such a leadership role within the workplace health industry,” Leeson stated. “I look forward to working alongside the Board and our members to continue to build on recent developments and see the industry continue to grow and prosper.”
Outgoing President, Brad McDougall, was recognised at the AGM for his long period of service for WHAA (and HAPIA) and the significant advancements made by the organisation under his recent presidency.
Three director positions were determined at the AGM. Carrie-Anne Leeson was returned while two new directors were elected to the WHAA Board;
Chris Drummer, CEO Australian Corporate Affairs and Advocacy Council
Olly Bridge, Head of Corporate Health and Wellbeing, Medibank
They join incumbent directors Leanne Scanes, Paul Richards and Greg McLoughlin on the Board of WHAA for 2015.
