CHANGES ACROSS NEXTDC BOARD
DATA centre operator NEXTDC Limited (ASX:NXT) has rolled out the next stage of its growth strategy, with a number of changes to the board starting today.

Douglas Flynn (pictured) will take over as non-executive chairman, after Ted Pretty stepped down to a director role.

Pretty says Flynn’s background in the media industry and past directorial roles, put him in good stead to govern NXT.

“Since joining as director of the company, Mr Flynn has made a very valuable contribution and I believe he is excellently placed to lead our board in our ongoing commitment and focus to help implement our strategic plan,” he says.

Flynn was most recently appointed as chairman of health and safety services company Konekt Limited in 2012.

Dr Gregory Clark will join Pretty, Stuart Davis and executive director Craig Scroggie on the board - following the resignation of Roger Clark and Gregory Baynton.

Clark served has experience in technology and was an ANZ board member for nine years, before stepping down in November 2013.

New chairman Flynn says the wide range of corporate experience will steer the business plan in the right direction.

“These changes strengthen the breadth of experience and independence of the board as we pursue our stated growth plan and work towards building shareholder value.

“The board wishes to thank Roger and Greg for their tireless efforts on behalf of shareholders and warmly welcomes Dr Greg Clark who brings rich global technology and corporate governance experience to the board,” he says.

Clark is also set to be appointed as chairman of the remuneration and nominations committee.
