KPMG today announces the appointment of Malcolm Lowe Lauri in its Global Centre of Excellence in Healthcare. Joining on 1st September 2012, he will initially support clients across Australia and the UK, before expanding his remit to work across the 150 countries in which KPMG operates.
Malcolm brings 32 years of experience working across the health service. He will use his experience and knowledge to assist and advise clients as they look to redesign care systems to provide better, and more, patient care.
Malcolm is one of the most recognised chief executives in the NHS, having spent 17 years as a CEO at Peterborough Hospitals Trust, Kings College Hospital Foundation Trust and, most recently, at University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust. He has deep experience of policy, strategy and operations throughout a distinguished career.
Malcolm will be based in Sydney and London and will join partners from a physician executive, clinical professional and general management back-ground in KPMG’s Global Centre of Excellence in Healthcare.
Commenting on his appointment, Andrew Hine, partner and head of public health for KPMG UK, says: “Malcolm's huge achievements in the NHS can help our clients with the pressing issues they face today. His strategic and operational experience, coupled with his commitment to quality, will help us build our practice and serve clients better".
Shane Solomon, leader of the health practice in KPMG Australia and former CEO of the Hong Kong Health Authority welcomed Malcolm's appointment and says: "I'm familiar with Malcolm's work and know that he will apply his skills and experience to Australian healthcare reform. These are both exciting and challenging times for Australia and global 'know-how' will be vital if we are to maintain our reputation as one of the highest performing health systems in the world".
Commenting on his appointment, Malcolm says: "I've always wanted to apply the skills and experience I have developed in the NHS across a global canvass. I hope to help clients successfully address some of the most pressing issues health systems face. I've met the global team and am excited about the opportunity".
