RACGP CEO Zena Burgess stands down

Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) CEO Zena Burgess has resigned after 11 years in the role.

The college board announced on Friday that chief operating officer Nick Williamson would act as CEO while a national search is undertaken for a new chief executive.

In a letter to members, Dr Burgess said the recent death of emeritus professor Peter Mudge had consolidated her intention to leave the college.

“I leave the college proud of our achievements, confident the organisation is in a strong position, and nostalgic for the excellent experiences we have had,” she wrote.

The board said it will use the legacy of the outgoing CEO as a platform to review its future strategic direction.

“That legacy includes a very healthy financial position, a large and growing membership, and strong relationships with key external stakeholders,” the board said.
