Dr Lester Levy: health's most powerful appointee

One of the busiest men in the health sector, Dr Lester Levy's job has recently expanded to see him lead all three Auckland DHBs: Auckland, Waitemata and Counties Manukau, covering around a third of the country's population. He talks to Kim about why so much power has been vested in him - and what he intends to do with it. Dr Levy also chairs Auckland Transport and engineering consultancy Tonkin & Taylor. He also heads the New Zealand Leadership Institute at Auckland University and teaches in the university's business school.
