Steven Gregg has been appointed to the Board of Caltex Australia Ltd and Elizabeth Bryan has confirmed that she intends to retire as Chairman and Non-Executive Director.
Mr Gregg has more than 20 years’ experience in senior management and consulting roles in Australia and overseas, including as partner in the corporate-finance and financial-institutions practice at McKinsey & Company and global head of investment banking and CEO at ABN AMRO Bank.
He is a director of Challenger Limited, Challenger Life Company Ltd, Tabcorp Holdings Ltd and William Inglis & Son Ltd, and serves as Chairman of The Lorna Hodgkinson Sunshine Home, a trustee of the Australian Museum and a member of the Grant Samuel non-executive Advisory Board.
Mr Gregg has been appointed as a member of the Caltex Board’s Nomination Committee.
Ms Bryan, who was appointed to the Board in 2002 and served as Chairman in 2007, has advised that she intends to retire as Chairman and Non-Executive Director with effect from December 9.
“Earlier this year, I agreed to continue to serve an additional period on the Board to assist Caltex with embedding recent changes to the business and to enable an orderly Board succession process,” she said.
“Following Barbara Ward’s appointment in April and the announcement of the appointment of Steven, I’m confident the Board is well placed to secure the achievements we’ve put in place and to oversee the next phase in Caltex’s growth. I’m incredibly proud of all that the management and Board of Caltex have achieved during my tenure and I look forward to seeing all that will be achieved in the future.”
Current Deputy Chairman Greig Gailey, who has served as a Non-Executive Director on the Caltex Board since 2007, will fill Ms Bryan’s position.
“It’s an honour to be appointed to the role of Chairman,” Mr Gailey said. “Caltex is a business that has successfully adapted and transformed itself in response to change. As the pace of change continues to accelerate, I look forward to working with the Board and management to navigate those changes and drive the next phase of Caltex’s growth.”
