New Chief Executive for PSC

Today is an exciting day for our PSC, Enliven and Family Works family as we welcome our new Chief Executive Joe Asghar.


Joe was officially welcomed at Central Hub this afternoon with a powhiri led by Jim Berry, PSC’s Cultural Director. Each member of PSC’s Senior Leadership Team and PSC board chair Peter Sherwin spoke, welcoming Joe, and thanking outgoing CEO Pat Waite for his contribution during his time with the organisation.

Joe brings to PSC a rich and varied career having worked across the health, government, voluntary and NGO sectors. Highlights include roles at the Royal Society of New Zealand, Diabetes NZ, ACC and Physiotherapy NZ.

He’s also actively involved in a range of community groups and is passionate about his volunteer work supporting the homeless in the Wellington region. Joe is a Justice of the Peace, chair of Te Awakairangi Health Network, a member of the Pharmacy Council Professional Conduct Committee and General Practice NZ Strategic Council and a Rotarian.

Joe will take the reigns from CEO Pat Waite, who has been pivotal in supporting PSC’s development. We’re looking forwards to this new adventure!
