The Skin Health Institute Board is delighted to announce the appointment of David Malone as the new CEO of Skin Health Institute.

David’s passion and commitment to improving health outcomes sustainably and engaging stakeholders were key factors in his appointment to the role.

David comes to us from the Department of Health where he has held many roles since 2018, with the most recent being Director, Medical Research and International Health. David led the teams responsible for COVID-19 pathology operations within the department, as well as the development of Victoria’s Public Health and Wellbeing Plan for 2019-2023.
David has a Bachelor of Science, a Bachelor of Applied Science, and a Master of Business Administration. He has previously held Chief Executive Officer positions at the Australian Primary Health Care Nurses Association, the Western Australian Health Promotion Foundation (Healthway) and the Australian Physiotherapy Association. David has also been an Advisor to the World Health Organisation.

Quote from David:
“I’m very excited to be joining an organisation that has such a strong legacy of delivering world-class dermatological care to thousands of patients every year for over three decades. SHI really is a unique organisation, with its mission of research, education, and high-quality clinical services for skin conditions and skin cancers. I’m looking forward to working with the Board, staff, and the stakeholders of SHI, to grow the business and drive its ongoing success.”
David will commence in his new role on Monday 3rd October.

It is with great sadness that we farewell Caroline Mulcahy, who will leave the Skin Health Institute after three years, which included bravely leading us through the pandemic. Caroline has been terrific; we will miss her and wish her well in her new role as Chief Executive at Sexual Health Victoria.
