After 4 and half years as CEO Ben Lucas has announced his resignation from the NZ Spinal Trust. This news has been embargoed on account of his new position wanting to be kept under wraps until certain parties had been informed. Ben has taken the vacant Christchurch based ACC role “Voice of the Consumer” and his last day here is Friday 8th April.
The Trustees and staff are hugely grateful to Ben for his energy and efforts and are sure we will continue to work together in some capacity due to his new role.
The board have asked existing General Manager Hans Wouters to step into an interim CEO role during this time of change. Hans has been with the trust for 5 years and is excited by the opportunity Ben’s departure presents.
