Search for AEMO non-executive directors
I wish to advise that AEMO is commencing a search for three new non-executive directors. This is necessary to fill the current vacancy on the Board and address the retirements of Mr Ian Fraser and Dr Michael Sargent AM when their second terms conclude at the annual general meeting to be held in November 2013.
Board search consultancy, Korn/Ferry International, has been retained to assist with the recruitment process, with the SCER Appointments Selection Panel being formed to make recommendations to the AEMO members in accordance with AEMO’s Constitution.
A Special General Meeting will be held once suitable candidates for the non-executive director roles have been selected. Members will then consider whether they recommend the candidates to the Standing Council on Energy and Resources for appointment.
All three candidates will need to satisfy the independence criteria specified in the AEMO Constitution.
For further information regarding the selection process and forthcoming Special General Meeting, please contact Brett Hausler, Company Secretary and General Counsel, on (03) 9609 8707.
