Shareholders’ Council Election Results

Global Dairy Company Chairman John Roadley says he’s looking forward to building a positive working relationship with the Chairman of the inaugural Global Dairy Company Shareholders Council.

“I am pleased to announce the results of the election for the council and look forward to it electing a chairman for me to work with,” Mr Roadley said. “Our company is proud to be a co-op and an effective council will help protect that principle for all time. The council chairman and I will need to establish a sound relationship based on respect for each others’ roles to secure the future all of us in the industry are seeking.”

Eleven of the 46 seats on the council were filled through the nomination process, with seven of the 25 wards receiving the same number of nominations as seats available.

There were contested elections in the other 18 wards for the 35 remaining seats to be filled and Mr Roadley welcomed the keen competition in those wards.

These seats have now been filled, except for one Hauraki seat where a runoff election will need to be held between two candidates who were dead-heats for the second seat in that ward. Turnout in the 18 contested wards averaged 51 percent.

The council will meet for the first time in the next fortnight and will need to work quickly to appoint a Valuer of the company’s cooperative shares and a Milk Commissioner to help resolve shareholders’ complaints arising out of the supply of milk to the company.

The council’s key role is to monitor the company’s performance and advocate for shareholders’ interests. The council will receive and review the board’s statement of intentions, and then report to shareholders on the company’s performance against those intentions.

The elections were scrutinised by KPMG.
