Issue 53 – September 2013
Standards Australia has announced the appointment of Dr Bronwyn Evans as Chief Executive Officer from 28 October 2013, due to the forthcoming retirement of incumbent Colin Blair.
Dr Alan Morrison, Chairman, Standards Australia, says, 'The appointment follows an exhaustive and rigorous process in which many high calibre candidates were considered and assessed.'
An engineer by profession, Dr Evans will come to the role following an extensive global career in healthcare and engineering, having most recently held the position of Senior Vice- President, Quality, Clinical and Regulatory at Cochlear Limited. Prior to that Dr Evans held senior positions at GE Healthcare and Ultrasound.
Dr Morrison paid tribute to Colin Blair, who he said had focused the organisation's efforts on its core mission of developing internationally aligned Australian standards in the national interest.
