Names new managing director.

Royal Philips has appointed Matt Moran as managing director for Philips Australia and New Zealand and general manager for health systems, effective 1 June 2018. Moran previously held the position of vice president and general manager of personal health ASEAN Pacific.

In his new position at the helm, replacing Kevin Barrow who left the business earlier this year, Moran will be responsible for the health systems, personal health and sleep and respiratory care businesses, leading a team of more than 450 staff. With more than 20 years of experience at Philips, he will focus on driving health transformations, value-based care and other growth opportunities that will further strengthen Philips’ leading positions in the industry.

Philips ASEAN Pacific CEO, Caroline Clarke, said, “We are very pleased to have Matt in this critical position for our region to stay ahead of a rapidly changing healthcare industry. He is well positioned to lead our team in Australia and New Zealand with his proven track record of delivering results for Philips over many years. Matt will continue to drive our strategic vision of transforming our footprint so we can better respond to our customers’ needs and allow for care to be integrated more seamlessly.”

In his tenure at Philips, Moran has held several senior leadership positions in general management, sales, marketing and business transformation across multiple countries in ASEAN Pacific, including Australia, as well as Europe and Russia.

“I am very proud to be appointed as managing director at this pivotal moment where the company is driving new solutions and models of care that make an impact to people and their communities to improve outcomes,” Moran commented.

“I look forward to being in Australia again and together with the team, working collaboratively with our customers, government and other industry partners to provide the most innovative solutions that support health and well-being, personal care, and shape and transform the way health care is delivered and experienced.”
