Trilogy International adds Australian based marketing and on-line expertise to its board

Trilogy (NZX: TIL) announced today changes to its board of directors, with the appointment of Mandy Sigaloff as a new Independent Director. Mandy is based in Australia and has significant expertise in on-line business, media and consumer marketing.

As part of the changes to the board, Rob Fyfe has advised he will not seek re-election as a director at the upcoming Annual General Meeting (24 September). Rob has been an active Board member while based in the UK this year, but has indicated his intention to refocus his energies towards seeking a new full-time executive role when he returns to New Zealand next year. Rob advised of his intention not to seek re-election in June this year.

Trilogy Chairman Geoff Ross said the board is delighted to have someone with Mandy's knowledge and expertise in on-line business join them.

Following 17 years managing international media brands including Grazia, Elle and New Woman for EMAP PLC in London, Mandy moved into the digital area to launch major music web sites, paid mobile content and, ultimately, lead successful online start-ups. Mandy founded clubqt (, a website which brings the best of the world's fashion together in an exciting social shopping community. She was named one of Australia’s business women of the year in 2012 by ‘Dynamic Business’.

Ross said in considering the new appointment the board had wanted someone who could add value to day to day operations in Australia, the biggest market for the business.

“With Mandy based in Australia she will be able to connect directly with our team and service providers in the Australian market, which will be a huge value-add to the board and business.”

Mandy said she is excited to be involved with a business with great brands like Ecoya and Trilogy. “I have watched the brands grow in the Australian market and feel really excited about the opportunity for future growth in on-line and the general consumer market,” she said.

Ross said he wished to thank Rob Fyfe for his input to the board since his appointment at the time of listing, and wishes him success with his future endeavours.

Rob has advised the board that he has no current intention to reduce his shareholding.

The change in the board structure will also mean changes to the audit committee. The audit committee will consist of Sarah Gibbs, Mandy Sigaloff and Rich Frank. Sarah will chair the audit committee. Sarah is a member of the NZ Institute of Accountants. CEO and Director Stephen Sinclair will attend audit committee meetings.
