Photo: BEN WATSON By SARAH CODDINGTON Little Kaitlin has only been in this world for 12 weeks but has already inspired her father to take on a new job. Brad Clark, who is the new Starship Foun- dation chief executive, saw the job advertised and knew he had to apply for it. And his first child with his wife Nicky was one of the major factors in applying. You walk through the Paediatric Intensive Care unit and your heart just melts, seeing these little babies hooked up to every tube imaginable. Your heart goes out to the parents. If anything happened to little Kaitlin I would know she had the best care,'' the Taka- puna resident says. He hopes he can help keep New Zealand's biggest children's hos- pital moving forward in the right direction to pro- vide top care for its patients. One of his biggest projects will be fund- raising for the level six ward for neurosurgery and neurological dis- orders. More than 2000 young patients are admitted to the ward each year. Mr Clark comes from a marketing and promo- tions background and until recently he was general manager at Can- Teen. He has also worked for the Royal New Zealand Foundation of the Blind. It is not until you get into not-for-profit organ- isations that you realise the good you are con- tributing to in society, Mr Clark says.
