COVINGTON, La. — Brett Gordon has been appointed president and CEO of the Louisiana Organ Procurement Agency. In addition to years of strategic, financial and general management experience, he has worked in organ and tissue donation as both chief financial officer and chief growth officer at Mid-America Transplant in St. Louis.

Nelson Hellwig, chairman of the LOPA board of directors, said the hire follows a national search of professionals in healthcare and health administration. 

“As LOPA continues to set organizational records for the number of lives saved, it is clear that Brett’s experience and capabilities make him uniquely qualified to lead the agency at a time of significant growth and opportunity,” he said.

Gordon will direct all aspects of the organization, including long-term strategic planning, performance management of employees, financial stewardship, policy development, and regulatory compliance. 

“I am excited to lead an organization whose commitment to helping save lives, restore health, and enhance medical care resonates with me personally and professionally,” Gordon said. ”I look forward to working with our hospital partners, transplant centers, families, and donation advocates to advance opportunities for the lifesaving gifts of organ and tissue donation.”
