Rob Bransby will resign as managing director of the state’s largest health insurer next year to take up the top job at Perth Racing.
He will remain in the job until mid-2016, at which point he will start in his new role as chief executive of Perth Racing.
“During my term we’ve accomplished truly great things. We have reinforced our position as the dominant health fund in Western Australia and transformed into a true health partner for our members,” Mr Bransby said.
“This year we signed our one millionth HBF member and returned a record amount in benefits.
“Our member satisfaction and our member retention are the envy of our competitors and for the last two years Canstar has named us as the fund offering ‘Outstanding Value’ in WA.”
Commenting on his new role, Mr Bransby said horses always played a special part in his life.
“I’m delighted to be combining work and my passion,” he said.
Mr Bransby is also president of the industry association Private Healthcare Australia and Australia’s representative on the International Federation of Health Plans.
