RACGP CEO resigns

In making the announcement today, Christine said:
 
‘Matthew joined us during a period of disruption and change for our workforce and our GP community. The reality of leading a national organisation from Sydney, with a strong staff base in Victoria, has proven particularly challenging amid COVID-related lockdowns and ever-changing state-based restrictions.
 
‘In his time with the RACGP, Matthew has successfully overseen pandemic-related pivots to the way we run our key RACGP exams, education and other programs and supported opportunities for innovation.
 
‘Matthew’s time as CEO has coincided with some significant and positive developments in his family life. He leaves to spend more time providing much-needed support to his wife and family in the short term.
 
The RACGP Board has extended its thanks to Matthew for his service, noting the college’s strong financial position amid uncertain times, a focus on transforming the culture, implementing a new strategic plan, and improving cross-college collaboration among his accomplishments during his tenure.
 
Matthew will depart in early August.
 
Christine will assume the interim position of RACGP Executive Chair, taking on the dual role of RACGP Board Chair and CEO while an executive search is undertaken.
 
The recruitment process will be led by Dr Charlotte Hespe, the Chair of the People, Nominations and Remuneration Committee of the Board.
