auDA’s Constitution requires the Board consist of five Independent Directors, four Elected Directors, and one Independent Chairperson. As a result of the ballot held prior to the Company’s Annual General Meeting in November 2019, only three Elected Directors were eligible to be appointed (having received a majority of favourable votes).
Accordingly, following an extensive recruitment and selection process by auDA’s Nomination Committee, a ballot of Associate Members was held in October 2020 to elect a fourth Elected Director to join the auDA Board.
We are delighted to announce Jackie Korhonen as the successful candidate, receiving the most favourable votes of the three candidates, and a majority of favourable votes as required under the auDA Constitution.
Accordingly, in line with the resolution passed at the September 2020 Board meeting, Jackie Korhonen is appointed to the auDA Board with effect from 11 November 2020 (the day after the 2020 AGM). The timing of the appointment enables Jackie to serve a full three-year term, consistent with last year’s Director appointments.
