The Board of Football Federation Australia (FFA) today announced its decision to establish a Nominations Committee as part of long-term succession planning for the FFA Board.
The Nominations Committee will be chaired by FFA Deputy Chairman Brian Schwartz AM with members and fellow FFA Directors Joseph Healy and Peter Tredinnick.
FFA Chairman Frank Lowy AC said the Nominations Committee would identify suitable candidates to present for nomination and election by the Members of FFA. Leading executive search firm, Egon Zehnder, has been engaged to support the process.
“Under the FFA Constitution, a Director must stand aside after two consecutive elected terms and that requirement means Brian Schwartz, Phill Wolanski and I will retire by November 2015,” said Mr Lowy.
“That-s more than two years away, but I believe it-s prudent to plan for this change that will see the departure of three long-serving Directors.
“Football today is firmly established in the mainstream of Australian society and we have huge growth potential in this country and into Asia.
“It-s an exciting time for the game and I-m sure we-ve put in place a process to identify candidates with the right calibre to take FFA forward.”
