Nominations for the 2014 Fonterra Elections closed at 12 noon today.

The candidates for the Fonterra Board of Directors’ Election will be announced on Tuesday, 23 September 2014 following the completion of the Candidate Assessment Panel (CAP) process.

The Returning Officer, Warwick Lampp, confirmed there will be no election for the Directors’ Remuneration Committee, as Shareholders Murray Holdaway and Philip Wilson have been elected unopposed.

7 – Piako Andrew McGiven
Malcolm Piggott

14 – Eastern Bay of Plenty Corrie Smit
Gerard van Beek

22 – Northern Manawatu Katherine Gillespie

There was one nomination received in each of the other 18 wards, so no election will be required in these wards. The formal declaration of these candidates as Shareholders’ Councillors will be made in conjunction with the results of the elections at the Annual Meeting.

The Councillors-elect are:
