Written by 

NOMINATIONS FOR the 2014 Fonterra elections have closed and the candidates for the Fonterra board of directors' election will be announced on Tuesday, September 23.

 

This will follow the completion of the Candidate Assessment Panel (CAP) process.

The returning officer, Warwick Lampp, confirmed no election for the Directors' Remuneration Committee is necessary as shareholders Murray Holdaway and Philip Wilson have been elected unopposed.

Nominations were also called for candidates for the Shareholders' Council in 22 wards. An election is required in four wards, as follows:
Ward 2, Central Northland, Penny Smart, Alex Wright; Ward 7, Piako, Andrew McGiven, Malcom Piggott; 14- Eastern Bay of Plenty, Corrie Smit, Gerard Van Beek, Wilson James; 22 Northern, Manawatu, Katherine Gillespie, Ellen Bartlett.

There was one nomination received in each of the other 18 wards, so no election will be required in these wards. The formal declaration of these candidates as Shareholders' Councillors will be made in conjunction with the results of the elections at the annual meeting.

The councillors-elect are:
