APPOINTMENT OF DIRECTORS (Agenda Item 6)
Directors Bron Davies, Kellie Dyer and Andrew Hughes will complete their terms at the conclusion of the AGM. Accordingly there are three elected director vacancies on the Board. Directors Davies, Dyer and Hughes, being eligible, have renominated for election.
Other nominations for these Board positions were called for in a Notice sent to members in the July 2018 MOVE Life and closed on 10th August, 2018. As no additional nominations were received the election process was discontinued and members will vote on the reappointment of Ms Davies, Ms Dyer and Mr Hughes as directors by separate resolutions at the AGM. In accordance with the Constitution, the Director Nominations Committee has completed the assessment process of the nominating candidates and has determined that Ms Davies, Ms Dyer and Mr Hughes are deemed to be fit and proper persons in accordance with MOVE Bank’s Fit and Proper policy.
At the end of this Explanatory Statement in Schedule “A” are nominee profiles prepared and provided by the three nominees. The profiles appear in alphabetical order.
Over the last year the Board has undertaken a detailed review of the current skills on the Board and identified additional specialist skills that would supplement those of current directors and assist the Board in the execution of the strategic goals and priorities for the organisation. The Board determined that the required specialist skills are:-
- Senior management experience in financial services and
- Information technology.
The Board has undertaken a search for director candidates with these specialist skills and accordingly, in May 2018, appointed Mr Sean O’Donnell to the Board as an external director. In accordance with our constitution an external director serves at the appointment of the Board for a term of up to twelve months.
REMUNERATION OF DIRECTORS (Agenda item 7)
At the AGM it will be proposed that the maximum total annual remuneration for the Board of Directors from the 2018-2019 financial year be increased by 4.5% to $290,826 plus superannuation. Although the proposed increase would result in remuneration less than that suggested in the independent assessment of director remuneration undertaken last year, the Board submits that the proposed increase is reasonable at this time.
Please note this figure is the proposed maximum total pool of remuneration for the whole Board not remuneration for an individual director.
