Marjo Vissers has been employed by VGZ since 2011. She was the division chair of healthcare since 2014 until she was appointed Chief Health Officer (CHO) in 2021. In the latter role, she was responsible for the healthcare and healthcare procurement portfolio (Zvw and Wlz) and the day-to-day management of the organization in this area. Vissers already temporarily took over the role of CEO from Karien van Gennip, who took up the position of Minister of Social Affairs and Employment on 10 January 2022. The Dutch Central Bank has approved her definitive appointment.
Marjo Vissers: 'Healthcare in the Netherlands faces an enormous challenge. And we can only meet that challenge together. To keep healthcare accessible, we must work with the healthcare field to find smart solutions to relieve healthcare staff and increase their job satisfaction. That means an acceleration of appropriate care, including through a transformation to digital where possible. In addition, we are working on a shift from care to health and care. This also requires connection and cooperation with other social partners. I am proud that as CEO I can work together with all my colleagues to make the Netherlands healthier and future-proof healthcare for everyone.'
