Mark Thompson
Chief Procurement Officer, Health Support Services (WA Health)

Mark joined HSS in June 2018 as the Chief Procurement Officer and has been leading the modernisation and transformation of procurement and supply services to reduce supply risk while achieving significant return on investment and cost savings across HSS and the WA health system. Most recently he played a key leadership role in the WA Health systems response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Mark has more than 20 years’ experience at a senior management level in the health care, disability, utilities and telecommunications industries in the government, private and not-for-profit sectors. He led numerous multi-disciplinary teams covering procurement, contract management, purchasing, supply chain, fleet management, sales and bidding. 

Prior to joining HSS, Mark managed a large procurement, warehousing and logistics function, and led one of Western Australia’s largest and most complex fleets. He implemented a major procurement operating model, which included the development of a long-term sustainable supply chain strategy. 

“Working together to improve our supply chain will lead to efficiencies and increase the reliability and responsiveness of supply to support the WA health system.”
