Jon Hartley Steps Down From Mighty River Power Board

Mighty River Power today announced that Director, Jon Hartley, would be stepping down from the Company’s Board, effective on 20 February 2013.

Mr Hartley, who has been a Director of Mighty River Power since November 2009, said the decision to step down was a difficult one, brought about by the revised timing of the proposed IPO creating significant workload clashes with his other long-standing commitments.

“Unfortunately, I have commitments to a number of self-funded overseas engagements with World Vision International and its micro finance subsidiary, VisionFund International, of which I am Vice Chair,” said Mr Hartley.

Mr Hartley has been involved with VisionFund International since 2003 and is passionate about the real impact through economic development and livelihood creation that is currently impacting more than 3 million children worldwide.

Mighty River Power’s Chair, Joan Withers, said it was with regret that the Board had accepted Mr Hartley’s resignation.

“Jon is held in very high regard by the Board and the Company has benefited from his expertise, contribution and commitment for the past three years. We understand and respect his decision and wish him well with World Vision International,” said Mrs Withers.
