Feb 2014 - The Beca Group recently appointed Jan Dawson as an Independent Director.

According to Beca Chairman Richard Aitken, Ms Dawson’s directorship skills are an asset to the Board’s deliberations. “We are very pleased to welcome Jan Dawson to the Group. Along with Beca’s other independent director, Catherine Drayton and our executive directors, Jan brings a great deal of experience and further governance expertise to the board table.”

Ms Dawson is currently Deputy Chair of Air New Zealand Limited, and a director of Westpac New Zealand Limited, AIG Insurance New Zealand Limited, Meridian Energy Limited and Goodman Fielder Limited. She is on the Council for the University of Auckland and a Trustee for the Voyager Maritime Museum.
