ISI ANNOUNCES THE APPOINTMENT OF CONCHITA KLEIJWEG AS NEW DIRECTOR
The ISI is pleased to announce the appointment of Conchita Kleijweg as the new Director to succeed Ada van Krimpen when she retires on 1 July.
ISI President Stephen Penneck said: "I am delighted to welcome Conchita to the ISI family. She is an all-round professional, and her policy and management experience will bring added strengths to the ISI. Conchita has gone through a rigorous competition which shows that she is an excellent match for the job.
I also want to pay tribute to Ada van Krimpen, who many members will have known over her twelve years at the ISI. She will be much missed. I have invited her to attend the WSC 2023 in Ottawa as our guest, where you will have the opportunity to thank her yourselves."
Conchita currently works for Nictiz, which develops and manages standards for data exchange in the health care sector in the Netherlands. Nictiz is a non-profit organisation, and Conchita is part of their management team, with responsibility for policy, information architecture and national and international programs. She is also on the European governing council for the professional association for healthcare information.
Conchita Kleijweg said: "I am looking forward to starting, meeting the members and contributing to the objectives of the ISI. The work of the ISI and its associations is important and I am very committed to continuing the good work that has been done and realizing the long-term goals."
