The CEO and Board's Role
The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) reports directly to the Board, and has the responsibilities of carrying out the plans, policies and directives set by the Board. Since the responsibility to manage the organization is delegated to the CEO, the Board has an important duty to ensure that the organization has effective executive management by:
- recruiting and hiring the CEO;
- setting expectations as defined in the employment contract and the annual goals and objectives of the organization; and
- evaluating the performance of the CEO.
The CEO of the Mamawetan Churchill River Health Region is Andrew McLetchie.
The CEO is the only individual in the Mamawetan Churchill River Health Region whose compensation includes pay for performance. To learn more about the Saskatchewan health system's Executive Pay-for-Performance Plan, click here.
