New Chief Business Development Officer Appointed

Bermuda Hospitals Board today announces the appointment of Mr R. Scott Pearman as its new Chief Business Development Officer, effective 1 April 2010.

The Chief Business Development Officer position provides research and business development skills at a senior level for Bermuda Hospitals Board in order to help develop the highest quality of health services to meet Bermuda’s long term health needs. The position reports to the Chief Executive Officer and has responsibility for strategic planning, business case development and the Department of Decision Support.

Mr Pearman has worked at Bermuda Hospitals Board for over fourteen years, joining in January, 1996 as Employee Labour Relations Manager. He was appointed the Director of Human Resources in 2000, a position Mr Pearman held for seven years before his appointment to Vice President of Physician Relations in December 2006. In this position Mr Pearman was responsible for the administrative function of the Chief of Staff Office and oversaw the implementation of physician billing, medical concierge services, credentialing & privileging and was appointed Executive Director of a hospital subsidiary created to prospect and incubate joint ventures with physicians. Mr Pearman is also the Chief Operating Officer for Inter-Island Communications Limited.

“I am very pleased to announce the appointment of Mr Pearman to the position of Chief Business Development Officer,” comments David Hill, Chief Executive Officer. “This is an extremely important position in senior leadership that requires the ability to strategise and build business cases for health services in line with Bermuda’s health needs. Previously, we required an overseas consultant from Kurron to fill this position. Thanks to the Succession Planning programme implemented by BHB last year, we have been able to identify and develop Bermudians with the potential to succeed in senior leadership role. Mr Pearman’s promotion is a result of that process.”
