We recently said farewell to our CEO, Simon James, who after two years of service has left Open Minds for pastures new. One of our existing leaders, Dr Peter Anderson, is taking on the role of Acting CEO while the Board sources a replacement.
With Simon James stepping down as CEO of Open Minds, Acting in the CEO role while the Board recruit a suitable replacement is Dr Peter Anderson, our current General Manager Service Development and Quality (GMSDQ).
