Corporate Governance



1.2 Board composition and Director


The Chairman is Andrew Reitzer, who is

an independent and non-executive Director.

The Managing Director and CEO is Julian


With the exception of Mr Ogrin, Mr Peter

O’Connell and Mr Rolf Hansen, the Board

is of the view all Directors are independent

Directors. The Board therefore comprises

a majority of independent, non-executive


The Board considers the composition of

the Board reflects an appropriate range

of independence, skills and experience. The

current Board is also relatively new, having

formed immediately prior to the Company’s

listing on the ASX on 15 July 2015.

The Board will regularly assess the

independence of each Director in light of

the interests disclosed by them from time

to time. That assessment will be made at

least annually at, or around the time, the

Board considers candidates for election to

the Board, and each Director is required

to provide the Board with all relevant

information for this purpose.

The independence of Directors was

considered leading up to the Company’s

listing on the ASX and in the preparation

of the accompanying prospectus material.

To the best of the Board’s knowledge, there

have been no material changes in FY16 which

would change this.

If the Board determines that a Director’s

independent status has changed, that

determination will be disclosed to the

market. The Company is of the opinion

that no currently independent Director

has an interest, position, association or

relationship of the type described in Box 2.3

of the Principles that would compromise the

independence of that Director.

1.3 Skills and diversity of the Board

The Company has developed a skills matrix

which sets out the mix of skills and diversity

currently reflected in its membership.

The Board recognises that for the effective

governance of the business, a diverse set

of skills, backgrounds, knowledge and

experience, is required. The Board and its

Remuneration and Nomination Committee

focus on ensuring the Board maintains

the appropriate balance of experience,

skills, independence and knowledge which

is needed to meet its responsibilities in

accordance with recognised governance


The skills were determined by reference

to what is considered important for the

management of a publicly listed company

and skills specific to the industry in which the

Group operates.

The following table sets out the experience

and skills deemed necessary or desirable by

the Board in the Company’s Directors and

whether they are represented on the Board.
