The Board of Directors of GMS (Group Medical Services) is pleased to announce the appointment of Mark MacLeod as President and Chief Executive Officer of GMS and GMS Insurance Inc., effective September 12, 2022.
“We completed an extensive national search and have found in Mark a wealth of leadership experience specializing in transformation and growth,” said GMS Board Chair Steve Engel. “His strong background in technology, his track record of strategic thinking and his dynamic leadership style with a focus on accountability will serve GMS well.”
MacLeod has significant previous leadership experience as CEO for four organizations; most recently as President and CEO of ISM Canada (a subsidiary of IBM Canada). MacLeod led ISM’s transformation into a provider of technology-based solutions that address complex business problems through a unique combination of local presence and global collaborations.
A graduate of the University of Regina with a Bachelor of Science majoring in computer science, MacLeod began his career by founding a Saskatchewan-based technology company. Less than a decade later, he managed its successful sale and integration with a larger competitor. Since then, MacLeod has earned a reputation for helping a wide range of businesses transform and thrive.
“Mark’s commitment to innovation and effective partnerships will be key as GMS continues our digital transformation,” said Engel.
“GMS has a strong commitment to helping customers and the broader community enhance their health and wellbeing,” said Mark MacLeod. “I’m excited to nurture and grow this sense of purpose as we maintain the trust of today’s customers and find even better ways to meet the demands of tomorrow’s marketplace.”
