Woolworths chief technology officer Ryan Fahy has left the retailer for the healthcare sector, taking on the chief information officer role at Primary Health Care.
Fahy had spent around two-and-a-half years at Woolworths as its CTO, including a brief period as its acting chief information officer after Clive Whincup resigned this time last year.
Fahy decided to quit when replacement Woolworths CIO John Hunt, who came over from Woolworths South Africa, joined in February. Woolworths subsequently subsumed the CTO role into the CIO position.
Today Fahy updated his LinkedIn profile to reveal his new CIO role at listed healthcare provider Primary Health Care.
He appears to have replaced the company's former CIO Jenny Levy, who had spent three years in the position.
Primary Heallth Care looks set to bolster its ranks further with the expected appointment of a chief information security officer; an advertisement for the role went out late last month.
The $2 billion company recently signalled an intention to roll out the Helix cloud GP and practice management platform in the back half of this year, alongside a wider transformation of core software platforms.
Fahy's former employer Woolworths has been on a campaign to improve its technology basics after stumbling towards the stabilisation of its new SAP-based merchandising system.
