New Chief of Business Development Appointed

Bermuda Hospitals Board (BHB) announces today the appointment of Mr Russell Gardner as Chief of Business Development, subject to immigration approval. Mr Gardner joined BHB on Monday 30 June.

The Chief of Business Development position was created last year in recognition that BHB needs sound research and business development skills at a senior level 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.

An American, Mr Gardner brings over 30 years of experience to BHB in senior financial, strategic planning, and corporate development leadership with several major health care systems. Prior to joining BHB, Mr Gardner was a Senior Consultant with Compass Group Inc, a health care consulting and executive placement firm, based in Cincinnati, Ohio.

He has also worked for Coopers & Lybrand (Cincinnati, Ohio), Children’s Hospital Medical Center (Cincinnati, Ohio), Mercy Health System (Cincinnati, Ohio) and McDonald & Co. Investments (investment banking in Columbus, Ohio).

Mr Gardner replaces Mr Neil Rolfes who worked in the role in an interim capacity until a permanent appointment could be made.

David Hill, Chief Executive Officer, comments: “I am extremely pleased to welcome Russ to the BHB family. BHB is going through many changes at the moment and is focusing on building a sustainable, high quality healthcare service for the Island. This means we have to thoroughly research how best to invest so that we improve and enhance our services and equipment in a timely and cost-effective way. It gives me great pleasure to have someone with Russ’ experience and qualifications onboard.”

Mr. Gardner is a graduate of the University of Cincinnati with a BBA in Accounting and earned an MBA from Xavier University in Advanced Business Economics. In addition, Mr. Gardner is a Certified Public Accountant.
