New CEO for ACP

3 March 2021

The Australasian College of Pharmacy has announced the appointment of its new Chief Executive Officer, Dr Dimitri Kopanakis.

ACP President, Ms Michelle Bou-Samra, said the College’s board had begun a rigorous recruitment process for its new CEO in December following Kathy Knack's resignation to pursue a family business opportunity in Central Queensland.

“From the outset, the College Board said one of the most important traits we were looking for in a new CEO was significant experience in education management and continuing to add value to members,” she said.

“Dr Kopanakis’ international experience in leadership and management combined with his passion and history in education and training are a significant asset. We are very excited Dimitri has joined the ACP as CEO for what will be a year of continued growth.

“His background as an academic and senior executive covers all levels of education from early childhood to higher education and vocational education and training, including positions in the corporate and not-for-profit sector.”
