The former charity chief executive will take up the post from next month.
Annie Gunner Logan has been appointed as the new vice chair at NHS Education for Scotland (NES) from September 1, as Douglas Hutchens' term comes to an end.
Annie was previously chief executive officer of the Coalition of Care and Support Providers in Scotland (CCPS), a membership organisation bringing together Scotland’s third sector social care organisations.
She has served as a non-executive director of the Scottish Government since 2014, and in that capacity serves on the Executive Board of the Crown Office & Procurator Fiscal Service (COPFS).
Annie has also previously served as a non-executive member on a range of public and voluntary sector boards, including the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR) and the UK drug and alcohol treatment charity, Phoenix Futures.
NES chair David Garbutt said: "I am pleased to announce that the Cabinet Secretary has appointed Annie Gunner Logan as the new Vice Chair of the NES Board from 1 September 2023.
“She brings a wealth of insight and experience, both from her existing role as a NES Board member, and also her previous roles. I am sure you will join me in welcoming her to this role."
In 2013, Annie was appointed by the then Deputy First Minister to serve on the Expert Working Group on Welfare in an Independent Scotland.
In March 2016, Annie joined the Advisory Board of IPPR Scotland and in 2021, she joined the Advisory Board of the International Public Policy Observatory (IPPO).
