The Minister for communications, Michelle Rowland, has appointed Ms Nicolette Maury and Ms Louise McElvogue as non-executive directors to the ABC Board for five-year terms.
Ms Maury is the CEO of Avani Solutions while Ms McElvogue is currently concluding a year serving as interim CEO of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians and is an Adjunct Professor in the Business School at the University of Technology Sydney.
Both directors were nominated for appointment by the independent Nomination Panel as part of the merit-based appointment process for the ABC and SBS Boards.
The Minister congratulated Ms Maury and Ms McElvogue on their appointments to the board and wished them well in their roles.
“The appointment of these two highly accomplished women to the Board will bolster the public broadcaster’s digital transformation, media and governance acumen as the ABC implements its Five Year Plan,” Ms Rowland said.
