Sacramento, CA – The Medical Board of California recently announced the appointment of Kimberly Kirchmeyer as its new interim executive director. Ms. Kirchmeyer has been with the Medical Board since 1999, and in the position of deputy director since 2005. In late 2009, Ms. Kirchmeyer left the Medical Board for approximately two years and served as deputy director of Board and Bureau Relations for the Department of Consumer Affairs. She returned to the Medical Board in June 2011 in her prior position as deputy director.
Kimberly Kirchmeyer succeeds Linda Whitney, former executive director of the Medical Board, who retired this month after 37 years of state service. Ms. Kirchmeyer begins her new position immediately.
“The Medical Board has confidence that Ms. Kirchmeyer has the ability and experience to provide the leadership necessary as the Board pursues its ambitious agenda of consumer protection”, said Board President Dr. Sharon Levine.
An executive recruitment and search committee is working with the Department of Consumer Affairs to ensure that Ms. Whitney’s replacement will continue the high standards and dedication to its consumer protection mission.
