The director general of the British Healthcare Trades Association (BHTA) is to resign from her post.
Tracey White has decided to leave the industry’s trade body and will depart at the end of March. The group has begun the process of finding a successor and expressions of interest can be made immediately by contacting the BHTA.
White told BHTA members this week: “I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with the BHTA, and am proud of what the staff, board and council have accomplished as a team on behalf of our members. I am sure that the association will continue to be an increasingly strong voice in the healthcare and assistive technology industry.”
A statement released by Alastair Maxwell, the BHTA’s chairman, said: “May I take this opportunity on behalf of the board, membership, staff and myself to thank Tracey for her achievements during her time as DG.
“She leaves the BHTA well positioned to deliver value to its membership whilst being well organised to face the undoubted market and political challenges that we will face in the future. I wish her all the best for the future.”
White became director general in March 2015, having joined the BHTA in 2012 as commercial director. Prior to joining the BHTA White was head of membership and careers at the Royal Town Planning Institute.
She is set to take up a new appointment in April as CEO of the Institution of Lighting Professionals.
Over the course of her directorship, White has worked closely with the membership, events and education team aiming to create and deliver profitable events, to build BHTA’s brand recognition, to identify new services for members and develop new income streams.
