"David Stock provided significant guidance in setting up the company in 1993 and has served on the board for 12 years," Dr Austin says. "His input has been significant. He has made a substantial contribution to the development of the CCHL group over the years, helping to make it the great company it is today. I thank him for this long and excellent service."

As well as providing legal advice to corporate clients across a broad spectrum of industries, Mr Dwyer is experienced in providing advice to boards.

Dr Austin says Mr Dwyer's wide experience will add value to the governance of CCHL and the board members are looking forward to working with him.
