Rotorua Lakes DHB

Stuart Burns,


I am passionate about the future wellbeing of our region, having been born, educated and spending most of my life in Rotorua,

My roles with a wide variety companies both private and NZX listed and also community, philanthropic and iwi organisations have provided me with strong governance and business experience.

In addition to my professional skills, I have a special interest in the areas of mental health, people with disabilities and improving health equity.

I am a Current Board Member, Chair of the Finance & Audit Committee, member of the Disability Support Advisory Committee, Mental Health model of care (Te Ara Tauwhirotanga) advisory group and the Mental Health facility rebuild governance group.

My experience along with my professional background means that I am well placed to continue to make a positive contribution to the Lakes DHB.
