Graham Catt’s resignation follows soon after that of Pharmacy Guild CEO David Quilty
Graham Catt has resigned as CEO of the Pharmaceutical Society of Australia (PSA), after less than one year in the job.
Mr Catt was appointed to the role in March 2018, officially starting in June.
This Monday he informed the PSA of his decision to step down.
Mr Catt had come into the job with experience leading national associations including the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) and Australian Veterinary Association where he had worked for the decade prior.
In response to the announcement, the PSA said: “The Board has extended its best wishes to Graham for the future.
“To ensure a seamless transition and certainty for our members and stakeholders, Dr Shane Jackson has been appointed as interim CEO and Belinda Wood appointed as Deputy CEO.”
Dr Jackson will step down from the PSA Board over this period.
Just a few days ago, Pharmacy Guild of Australia executive director David Quilty announced he was retiring from the role after more than six years in the job.
