Governance Institute of Australia has appointed Warren Baillie president, effective 1 January 2018.

 

Mr Baillie takes the reins ahead of an exciting year as Governance Institute continues its work promoting and facilitating world-class whole-of-organisation governance.

 

“I’m excited by Governance Institute’s new approach,” Mr Baillie said. “We have opened new pathways to membership, and are offering new training courses – such as the Effective Director Course and an on-line Sports Governance program. Our revamped Governance & Risk Management Forums will be held all around the country and focus on strategy, culture and technology. It’s a great time to be a member of Governance Institute.”

 

“Our policy and advocacy team and member committees will continue their crucial work engaging with regulators and parliamentarians to ensure that good governance standards are maintained across all sectors – from listed companies to not-for-profit organisations and the public sector,” he said. “In particular, we look forward to participating in the upcoming conversation around the ASX Corporate Governance Council’s revision of their Corporate Governance Principles and Recommendations.”

 

Mr Baillie is the Company Secretary at Woodside Energy. He joined Woodside as a Senior Lawyer in 2005 and was appointed Company Secretary in 2012. Before joining Woodside, he practiced as a Senior Associate in the corporate and commercial area with a national law firm. He has served as a vice president of Governance Institute since 2016.

 

He will be supported in his new role by vice-presidents Rachel Rees FGIA FCIS and John Mazengarb FGIA FCIS.
