At 30 June 2017, the Board of Directors comprised 5 Independent non-executive Directors and 2 Executive Directors.
The Independent and Non-Executive Directors bring a wide range of experience and skills to the Board. The Executive Directors are involved in the day-to-day management and are in the full-time salaried employment of the Group. The Board is responsible for providing effective corporate governance. It determines the Company’s purpose, strategy and values and ensures that the Company and its controlled entities are properly managed. It monitors and evaluates the implementation of strategies, policies, management performance criteria and business plans.
The role and function of the Chairman, who is an independent director, and of the Chief Executive Officer, are separate. The Chairman presides over meetings of directors and ensures the smooth functioning of the Board. The management of the Group is carried out by the Chief Executive Officer who also develops and recommends to the Board the long-term vision and strategy for the Group, as well as formulates annual business plans and budgets to support the long-term strategy approved by the Board.
