Our leadership

The SAMED Board, comprising a diverse selection of industry leaders, is tasked with ensuring our continued ability to create and sustain value for our members and stakeholders. It does so by setting strategic direction, reviewing and forming committees, engaging with stakeholders and overseeing our governance procedures.

With the holistic interests of the industry at the heart of the Board’s mandate, its members regularly meet and focus on building the credibility of the sector among our stakeholders.

The SAMED Board reviews and forms our committees annually, giving due consideration to transformation, representation, applicable expertise and capacity building.
