Rob Mcleod To Join Telecom Board

Telecom today announced the appointment of businessman Rob McLeod to its Board.

Chairman Dr Roderick Deane said Mr McLeod will be joining the Board from 26 July.

“Following the recent appointment of Mr Wayne Boyd, this is another exceptionally strong addition to our Board.

“Rob brings a deep understanding of business and finance and has a broad commercial perspective based on his involvement across many areas,” Dr Deane said.

“We now have a broad and well balanced set of skills and experience around the Board table and we’re not looking to make any more appointments at this stage,” Dr Deane said.

Mr McLeod is currently in the process of resigning from his position of Chairman of Ernst & Young. He is Chairman of the NZ Business Roundtable and a director of Tainui Group Holdings. He was appointed by the Prime Minister to the steering group of Hui Taumata, the Maori economic development summit.

He was until 2003 a member of the Treaty of Waitangi Fisheries Commission. He has also worked on Government taskforces looking at tax issues and the Inland Revenue Department and he was a member of the 1993 Ministerial Taskforce on Tertiary Education.

Mr McLeod was formerly a partner in Peat Marwick, McLeod Lojkine, and Managing Partner of Andersen New Zealand.

He is of Ngati Porou descent

The Board has determined that Mr McLeod will be an independent director as defined in the Telecom Board Charter and NZX Listing Rules
