The Northern Australia Primary Health Limited (NAPHL) Board has appointed Luke Guazzo as Acting Chief Executive Officer following the resignation of Linda Kensington recently.

NAPHL Chair Dr Michael Clements welcomed Mr Guazzo to the role after accepting the resignation of Ms Kensington.

“Linda has been with us for almost three years leading the organisation through a significant transition phase which also saw us grow into new areas and take on new business opportunities and the Board has been very grateful and appreciative of her hard work and dedication to supporting the NAPHL mission and values,” Dr Clements said.

“Linda has shown a great commitment to supporting the health care needs of North Queenslanders, in particular First Nations’ health support services.”

“The Board wishes Linda the best for her future and thanks her for her service.”

Dr Clements said Mr Guazzo will continue advancing NAPHL interests and values and provide continuity and support for NAPHL staff.

“The Board look forward to working closely with Luke and the NAPHL leadership team. NAPHL values its staff and a strong and supportive work culture, providing important services to our community."
