The Central California Blood Center has hired a new president and CEO to replace longtime executive Dean Eller.
Christopher Staub, who has served as the Blood Center’s chief operations officer for the last 18 months, will take the CEO position on Aug. 1.
Stab has more than 30 years of leadership experience in hospitals and blood centers, with scientific, business and management experience in blood banking and health care. He also serves on the board of directors of America’s Blood Centers.
“We are pleased our selection is from our internal leadership team who has a connection to our organization and has made his home in the Central Valley,” said Dan Stobbe, M.D. chairman of the Central California Blood Center board of directors, in a statement.
“His scientific and technical background, coupled with his administrative and leadership experience, make Mr. Staub the right person to lead the Central California Blood Center in challenging times for healthcare and blood services providers,” Stobbe added.
Eller, who served as president and CEO since 1999, retires July 31.
“We thank Dean for his passion, commitment and stewardship. Our Blood Center is financially healthy and well positioned to serve area hospitals and their patients,” Stobbe said.
