Mike Pinkerton, who has been acting chief executive at Doncaster and Bassetlaw Hospitals, has been appointed to the job permanently.
Mr Pinkerton, 51, who has been acting chief since last September, will take up the post immediately. This will be his second stint with the trust, which he rejoined in last June as director of transformation.
Mr Pinkerton, who is married with three children and lives in Retford, succeeds Ron Calvert who took up a new post in Australia.
He said: “I am delighted to have been appointed chief executive. It’s a pleasure to be working with the excellent staff in the trust, and our partners, in developing our services. I am looking forward to ensuring the trust’s continued success as a healthcare provider of high quality services.”
Trust chairman Chris Scholey said: “We are very fortunate to have Mike. His strong leadership and clear vision will certainly steer us through the future challenges we face as an organisation.”
