Rosalie Percival is the Chief Financial Officer of Te Whatu Ora – Health New Zealand.
Rosalie has an extremely strong background in, and understanding of, the complexities of health sector funding and finance. She is an accounting professional with over 30 years’ experience, the majority in healthcare settings. Rosalie has a strong focus on equity and how to use financial investment to improve health outcomes for New Zealanders.
