From: John G. Kelton, MD, Dean and Vice-President, Faculty of Health Sciences

The Faculty of Health Sciences has undergone tremendous growth in the past decade and as we prepare for the future, I would like to introduce a new position within the Faculty of Health Sciences (FHS) at a senior management level, the role of assistant vice-president/chief administrative officer. I expect this new role will ensure stability and help position the Faculty for future opportunities.

I am pleased to announce the appointment of Debbie Martin to this new position, effective immediately. Debbie Martin has been with the Faculty of Health Sciences for 20 years and has held several leadership roles, most recently as the executive director of corporate services and major gifts. Ms. Martin earned her Bachelor of Commerce and MBA from McMaster’s DeGroote School of Business and she recently received her Certified General Accountant designation.

In this new role, Ms. Martin will have primary responsibility for the strategic direction of the Faculty in all non-academic functions. She will be a professional advisor to the dean and vice-president in the development of FHS administrative policy, as well as University administrative policy where unique FHS issues apply. As a member of senior management within the University, she will have responsibility for horizontal integration of key priorities for the University within the Faculty of Health Sciences. Ms. Martin will be an important member of our Faculty Executive Council, involved in priority areas of the Faculty. She will continue to have a leadership role in the development of the McMaster Health Campus, along with other projects for the FHS and as a Faculty representative for University initiatives.

Please join me in congratulating Debbie as she takes on this role.
