LPP strapline

Mario Varela

Managing Director
Mario Varela

Mario joined Bart’s and The London NHS Trust in 2004 after a two year secondment from NHS PASA where he was an Associate Director of Purchasing with responsibility for £1.5bn of NHS expenditure. He worked closely with policy leads and Ministers on high profile government projects. Mario transformed the focus from “transactional” to “added value” at Bart’s through investment in professional expertise and modernisation of processes through technology. This delivered in excess of £35m in savings. He has been leading LPP since 2009 and appointed as its first Managing Director in 2011. He is a graduate in Business Studies with an MBA, is a full member of CIPS and a member of the Chartered Institute of Personnel Development.
