Julie Houlder joined the George Eliot Hospital Trust Board in May 2016 to help make a difference to the lives of people in Nuneaton, Bedworth, North Warwickshire and surrounding areas.
Julie has financial and senior management experience and will be chairing sub committees within the Trust.
Julie, who lives in Solihull, had started her career in the health service in 1979 before moving into a career in transport, where she had been Head of Finance and an Executive Board Member at CENTRO for the last ten years. Her experience includes financial management, board management, coaching and mentoring skills. She also enjoys people development and strategic planning. Recently she had the opportunity to take early retirement and to use her skills and experience within other fields.
Julie said: “I really wanted to get back into the Health Service and my role as Non-Executive Director will give me an opportunity to share my broad skill set. It is an exciting time to work within the NHS with all of the changes being implemented. People are at the centre of delivering excellent services so I am really excited to be given the opportunity to get involved here at the George Eliot.”
