The Southern District Health Board has appointed a new head of communications.
Dr Nicola Mutch, marketing and communications manager at Otago Polytechnic, will start work next month.
Vacant since September when Steve Addison departed, the position pays up to $145,000, the Otago Daily Times understands.
Dr Mutch has a PhD in corporate social responsibility and has previously worked for Amnesty International and the University of Otago.
Hers is the last of three recent top board appointments.
The new chief medical officer, Dr Nigel Millar, and new chief financial officer, Clive Smith, have been confirmed previously. They start work in March.
