The MSFHR Board is pleased to announce that following an executive search process, Dr. Bev Holmes has been appointed as president and CEO. With an eight-year history of leadership within MSFHR, Bev is ideally suited to lead BC’s expert health research funding agency, and continue to develop the talent BC needs to advance health research and the knowledge economy.
Bev brings a wealth of experience in health research, practice and policy to this role. Since joining the Foundation in 2010, her commitment to integrating these disciplines has seen her lead the Foundation through the launch of a new suite of funding programs that focus on developing, retaining, and recruiting BC health research talent and support addressing health system priorities. She has served as interim president and CEO of the Foundation since early 2017.
