The Board of the Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD) has accepted the resignation of AICD CEO, John Brogden AM FAICD.
Mr Brogden has been Managing Director and CEO of AICD since January 2015 and is also Chairman of Lifeline Australia and UrbanGrowth NSW.
AICD Chairman, Elizabeth Proust AO FAICD, said: “As CEO, John has driven the creation and initiation of a number of important policy and member service developments. "In particular John has been effective in increasing membership and raising AICD's advocacy profile.”
“On behalf of the AICD, I thank John for his contribution to the Institute as MD and CEO and we wish him every success in his future endeavours,” Ms Proust said.
Mr Brogden said: “AICD plays a vital role in the development of corporate governance policy, company director knowledge and talent. I am pleased to have made a contribution to the organisation over the last two years.
“However, looking at the time commitment required by the CEO role at AICD, I have decided to stand down from this role and focus my energies on my obligations as Chairman of Lifeline and UrbanGrowth NSW in particular.
“I remain a Fellow of AICD and am intensely interested in and supportive of the work that AICD is doing,” Mr Brogden said.
The AICD’s Chief Financial Officer, Rachel Gatehouse, is Acting CEO while a search is undertaken for Mr Brogden’s replacement.
