Chris Harrop has been appointed as the new Managing Director of MIAA, the northwest-based provider of assurance and solution services for the NHS and wider public sector.
Chris, previously Chief Executive of the Walton Centre, has been part of MIAA’s Executive team since 2018 as Solutions Director.
Chris has overseen the growth of MIAA’s Solutions Service, following its formation by current MD, Steve Connor. MIAA Solutions provides leadership of the award-winning Cheshire & Mersey Medicines Optimisation, has provided wider support to CCGs to address CHC deferred assessment backlogs and supported clients to pilot virtual covid wards.
Chris is also passionate about our core Assurance services, as the provider of choice for Internal Audit and Anti-Fraud services to the NHS in the northwest.
Following his appointment, Chris said, “I’m delighted and extremely proud to be taking over the role of MD from Steve. I have seen MIAA grow over the last 30 years and so much has been achieved.
“MIAA is a values driven organisation that punches well above its weight. To be one of the first to embrace the ISO process, to achieve IIP Gold status and to be recognised as a Level 3 Finance Development organisation are just some of the amazing things that MIAA has achieved. I am so excited to have the privilege to lead such a great team into what I know will be a successful future”.
Retiring MD, Steve Connor commented, “I am delighted that Chris has been appointed as MD. He will bring the continuity and leadership to continue MIAA’s long track record of success.”
