21 December 2017 Auckland EROAD announced today that Graham Stuart will join the board of the transport technology and services company. He will also chair the Finance, Risk and Audit Committee.
Mr Stuart is currently an Independent Director of Tower Insurance and Chairman of its Audit Committee.
Mr Stuart has had extensive business experience in South East Asia, Europe, the UK and Latin America and held chief executive and chief financial officer roles in some of Australasia’s largest companies.
Mr Stuart was previously Chief Executive Officer of Sealord Group. Prior to that Mr Stuart was Chief Financial Officer then Director of Strategy & Growth at Fonterra.
EROAD chairman Michael Bushby said with the departure of Sean Keane from the board in May this year, the company had been searching for an Auckland-based independent director and was delighted Mr Stuart had accepted an invitation to join the board.
“Graham’s track record leading some of New Zealand’s most successful exporters will be invaluable as EROAD continues to take advantage of opportunities for growth in Australia, New Zealand and North America,” Mr Bushby said.
EROAD chief executive Steven Newman said he looked forward to working with Graham as a member of the board.
“Graham brings a wealth of international experience and strategic capability to the board. As EROAD marks ten years in business, Graham’s experience in scaling organisations for growth will be a real asset as we build on our position at the centre of New Zealand’s transport services ecosystem, and continue to expand across North America and Australia,” Steven Newman said.
Mr Stuart will join the EROAD board as an Independent Director on 1 January 2018. The board has determined that Mr Stuart is an independent director for the purposes of the NZX Listing Rules.
