It is Board policy that the majority of the Board should be non-executive directors, and the Chairman should be a non-executive director. Non-executive Directors with Brickworks Limited are responsible for reviewing the composition of the Board. This ensures that directors are chosen on the basis of appropriate experience and expertise.
Where a vacancy exists on the Board, or where the non-executive directors consider that the Board would benefit from the appointment of additional directors with particular expertise or experience, the nonexecutive directors, in conjunction with external advisors if appropriate, will select suitable candidates.
Brickworks Limited does not have a separate nomination committee, however the non-executive members of the Board fulfil the role of a nomination committee. Any director appointed by the Board in this manner must be re-elected at the next Annual General Meeting.
