Blight hands over operational baton to Quirke at Alcidion
Alcidion CEO Kate Quirke has been appointed group managing director of the ASX-listed health technology company, with co-founder Ray Blight moving to a new role as non-executive chairman.
Mr Blight, who founded the company in Adelaide with health informatician Malcolm Pradhan in 2000, led the company through its purchase of health IT services and integration specialist MKM Health and affiliate Patientrack last year.
Ms Quirke was CEO of MKM Health and was named as CEO of Alcidion following the merger, with Mr Blight moving up to an executive chairman role.
MKM Health co-founder Colin MacKinnon, currently Alcidion's commercial manager, has been appointed chief operating officer and chief financial officer, taking over from CFO and company secretary Duncan Craig, who has resigned for personal reasons.
In a statement to the stock exchange, Mr Blight said the handover of operational control to Ms Quirke followed a smooth transition.
“She has clearly demonstrated her capability as the leader for the times, with the skills to take our suite of technology and services and establish Alcidion as a global leader in healthcare IT,” he said.
