Australian Digital Health Agency appoints new CEO

The Board of the Australian Digital Health Agency has appointed Amanda Cattermole PSM as Chief Executive Offer of the Agency. Cattermole has a long history of senior leadership roles in service delivery in the public sector, leading high-performing organisations, while growing customer satisfaction and staff engagement. Cattermole also has experience in digital transformation across government and within the health sector.

Previously, Cattermole was Chief Operation Officer of Services Australia, responsible for budget and financial services, people, governance, audit and risk. Cattermole was also the interim CEO of Services Australia and has held Deputy Secretary roles in health service delivery in the Commonwealth and in the Victorian State Government.

Board Chair Dr Elizabeth Deveny welcomed Cattermole’s appointment, stating that the Board has appointed a leader who is deeply skilled, committed to improving the health of all Australians and who understands the importance of digital innovation in better connecting Australia’s healthcare system.

“Amanda Cattermole is held in the highest regard across the public service and health sector and will bring a depth of knowledge and capability to the role of CEO at a time when digital health has never been more important,” Dr Deveny said.

Cattermole holds a Master of Laws from Charles Darwin University, a Master of Business Administration from the University of Western Australia and Bachelor Degrees in Law and Commerce from the University of Melbourne.

The Board of the Agency also acknowledged the leadership of Bettina McMahon, who acted as CEO since February 2020. “The Board of the Agency would like to thank Ms McMahon for her leadership, dedication and commitment, and wishes her the best for the future.”

Cattermole will commence on Tuesday, 29 September.
