Mark Cormack

Mark Cormack joined DVA as Chief Operating Officer and Deputy Secretary on 31 May 2018.

Mr Cormack was most recently at the Department of Health, where he was Deputy Secretary, Health Financing.

He’d worked previously as a Deputy Secretary in the Department of Immigration and Border Protection, Chief Executive Officer of Health Workforce Australia and Chief Executive, ACT Health.

Mr Cormack said he was excited to be joining at a time when DVA was celebrating 100 years of repatriation and transforming to better serve veterans and their families.

‘There’s an incredible amount of work that needs to be done,’ he said.

‘But there is a really clear purpose in what we do … we’re focused on veterans and the service they’ve given this country, and the impact of that service on them and on their families.’

The new Deputy Secretary has worked in and for the public health care sector for more than 30 years variously as a health professional, senior manager, policy maker, planner, agency head and industry advocate.

Ms Cosson was promoted to the role of Secretary on 19 May following the retirement of former Secretary Simon Lewis PSM.
