New CEO for Company Directors
Monday, 14th July 2014 at 11:18 am

Former NSW Opposition Leader John Brogden has been appointed as the Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director of the Australian Institute of Company Directors.

Brogden, who is currently Chief Executive Officer of the Financial Services Council, which represents Australia's $2.2 trillion funds management industry, superannuation funds, life insurers, financial advisory networks, trustee companies and public trustees, will start the position early next year.

He will replace John Colvin, who has led the Company Directors for six years.

“John Brogden brings a wealth of experience as an executive, director and chairman in the commercial and the Not for Profit sectors, and as an outstanding business organisation leader,” Company Directors’ Chairman Michael Smith said.

“We are very pleased that he will be joining us to lead the Institute into the next phase of its growth, building on the success achieved by John Colvin.

"I am excited to have the opportunity to lead one of Australia’s leading business organisations.  

“The quality of governance and the leadership of company directors and boards continue to be critical to the development of Australia’s economy and society. The role of the Institute is critical in ensuring quality laws, principles and practices and public and stakeholder awareness of good governance.”

In 2006, Brogden was appointed CEO of health insurer Manchester Unity, which he successfully merged with HCF in 2008. From 2006 to 2009 he also was the Chairman of Abacus Australian Mutuals, the body representing Australia’s credit unions and building societies.

Brogden is currently the Chairman of UrbanGrowth NSW, Lifeline Australia, Furlough House Retirement Village and The Broken Bay Institute. He is a Director of NIA Limited (health.com.au) and a member of the NAB Advisory Council for Corporate Responsibility.

He is also the Patron of Kookaburra Kids, Sailability Pittwater, Bilgola Surf Lifesaving Club and Avalon Beach Surf Lifesaving Club.

From 1996 to 2005 John was the Member for Pittwater in the NSW Parliament. From 2002 to 2005 he was Leader of the Opposition – at 33, the youngest person ever to hold the role and lead a major political party in Australia. He holds a Master of Public Affairs from the University of Sydney.

Brogden is a Member of the Order of Australia (AM), recognising his significant service to the community through his leadership roles with social welfare organisations, particularly Lifeline, to the business and financial sectors and to the Parliament of New South Wales.
