SMHS Board Member David Rowe brings a valuable external perspective to the boardroom table thanks to his diverse experience in a variety of executive roles.

David has worked in a range of high profile private sector positions as well as for the Western Australian, Victorian and Federal governments, and as an advisor for a United Nations project.

More recently, David has been a member of the SMHS Governing Council, Deputy Chairman of the WA Land Authority and a Member of the Water Corporation’s Board of Directors. 

He has also held senior executive roles in the property development and building industries and will be known to many as the former Chairman of Fremantle Hospital Medical Research Foundation (FHMRF).

During his time with FHMRF, David met many health sector managers, clinicians and researchers and witnessed their achievements first-hand.

He said his extensive work experience would allow him to make a positive contribution to the future of SMHS.

"I will endeavour to work with the Board and the SMHS executive team to bring some external thinking to the table, particularly focusing on the business of health and the value of research for the local community," David said.

"I also have an interest in the professional development of executive and administrative staff."

David intends to focus on establishing strong working relationships with SMHS Executive and senior clinicians, as well as financial management and clinical research.
