New Director appointed to nib Board

We have welcomed barrister, Hanne Janes, as a Director of the nib Board.

With nearly 20 years’ specialist expertise in the healthcare sector, Mrs Janes has an extensive understanding of the New Zealand health landscape including Government policy and funding, healthcare delivery as well as regulatory and compliance requirements.

nib New Zealand Chairman, Mr Tony Ryall, said Hanne has the skills, experience and knowledge to complement the nib Board but also add considerable bench strength.

“Hanne has detailed knowledge of how the New Zealand healthcare system works, making her an ideal member of the Board as we continue to build upon the success our business has already achieved in New Zealand,” Mr Ryall said.

“Hanne’s experience combined with her strong economic, commercial and legal background make her an ideal candidate to join the nib New Zealand Board,” he added.

Following her time as a management consultant with Deloitte, Mrs Janes then moved into law where she has been a practising barrister for almost two decades.

Recently appointed Commercial Director to the ProCare Health Limited Board, Mrs Janes also has extensive experience in commercial and corporate law, including expertise in workplace health and safety.

She holds a Bachelor of Laws (Honours) and Bachelor of Arts (Economics and Political Studies) from the University of Auckland.

The appointment of Hanne follows the announcement in November last year by Dr Annette Carruthers that she would be retiring from the ASX-listed nib holdings limited and New Zealand subsidiary Boards.
