Tasmanian Branch welcomes new leadership

The Pharmaceutical Society of Australia (PSA) Tasmanian Branch welcomes new leadership, electing a new Branch President and Vice President.


Earlier this week, PSA’s Tasmanian Branch Committee elected David Peachey as Branch President, and Anne Todd as Vice President.


PSA also congratulates Ilwoo Park and Hany Aita on their elevation to members of the Branch Committee.


PSA National President, A/Prof Chris Freeman, congratulated the newly elected members and thanked Dr Ella van Tienen for her service as Branch President.


“I congratulate David and Anne on their appointments to lead the Branch. Drawing on their extensive experience and skillsets, they will advocate for the profession and promote membership across Tasmania.


“David is a strong proponent of contemporary pharmacy practice, driven by best practice and placing the patient at the centre of care delivery.


“Their appointments will ensure members’ interests are represented as part of the Member First pillar of PSA’s Strategic Intent.”


A/Prof Freeman extended thanks to Dr van Tienen for her outstanding contribution to the role and the pharmacy profession.


“Over the past five years, Ella has led the Branch by example and we are delighted that she will continue to serve the Branch as State Manager.


“I would also like to thank Shane Jackson for his interim leadership in the role, now resuming his seat as one of the two Vice President’s on the Tasmanian Branch Committee,” A/Prof Freeman said.


PSA is excited by these appointments and is relishing the opportunity to work closely with this experienced group of leaders.
