Former New South Wales opposition leader John Brogden has been appointed managing director of the Australian Institute of Company Directors, after serving as chief executive of the Financial Services Council.

Mr Brogden was the youngest person ever to lead a major political party in Australia, becoming Liberal Party leader in 2002 and holding the office until 2005.

He went on to be chief executive of Manchester Unity, a health insurer that later merged with HCF.

At the FSC, Mr Brogden represented $2.2 trillion worth of funds managers, insurers and trustees.

"John Brogden brings a wealth of experience as an executive, director and chairman in the commercial and the not-for-profit sectors, and as an outstanding business organisation leader," said AICD chairman Michael Smith.

"We are very pleased that he will be joining us to lead the institute into the next phase of its growth, building on the success achieved by John Colvin," he added.

John Colvin is stepping down after 6 years at the helm of the institute, which provides advice and training for company directors.

 "I am excited to have the opportunity to lead one of Australia's leading business organisations," Mr Brogden said. 

"The quality of governance and the leadership of company directors and boards continue to be critical to the development of Australia's economy and society.

“The role of the Institute is critical in ensuring quality laws, principles and practices and public and stakeholder awareness of good governance”.
