Foreign Investment Review Board Appointment

Today I am pleased to announce the appointment of Ms Anna Buduls as a non-executive member of the Foreign Investment Review Board (FIRB).

Through her corporate advisory work and 15 years of non-executive company directorships, Ms Buduls has gained wide commercial experience across a broad range of companies and industries. She is currently owner and Chairman of a travel software group, and has been a non-executive director of listed companies SAI Global Ltd since October 2003 and Centro Properties Group since October 2009.

Ms Buduls is replacing Ms Lynn Wood, who recently retired from the Board after 15 years of service. I would like to express my appreciation for Ms Wood's valuable contribution and long standing participation as a member of the FIRB.

Ms Buduls will join existing FIRB members Mr John Phillips AO (Chair), Mr Brian Wilson, Mr Hamish Douglass and Mr Patrick Colmer (Executive Member) on the five member FIRB.
