For Immediate Release

Mitre 10 Adds David Jackson to Co-operative’s Board

Experienced Director David Jackson has been added to the Board of leading home improvement retailer Mitre 10 as an independent advisor to the highly successful co-operative’s Board.

As with many co-operative’s, the Board is predominantly made up of members. However, Mr Jackson will be an independent advisor, replacing John Spencer who has become a Mitre 10 Director, after serving as independent advisor to the Board.

“It is refreshing to have this independent sort that can help us take a more outward looking perspective,” Mitre 10 chairman Martin Dippie said. “In David Jackson’s case we also have an independent advisor who has a deep understanding of co-ops and how they work, experienced gained from his on-going role with Fonterra and through his work with co-operatives as an audit partner at Ernst and Young.

“I think his skills will be invaluable to us as we continue to expand and invest in our network of stores, look for new members and continue to consolidate our place as the No.1 home improvement and garden retailer in New Zealand.”

As well as his role with Fonterra Mr Jackson is the current chairman of the New Zealand Refining Company, he also chairs Moturoa Island Ltd and is a director of Nuplex Industries Ltd.

He has previously served on the Boards of Pumpkin Patch and Mediaworks and was a member of Securities Commission. He is a former chairman of Ernst and Young and has been a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants since 1994, where he has held several roles including Chair of the professional Practices Board.
