The federal government has today announced new and renewed appointments to its Takeovers Panel including Perth-based John McGlue, Shirley In’t Veld and Denise McComish.
Melbourne-based Alex Cartel, a current member, has been appointed as president for a three year term from March 8.
Other members appointed for the same term are Amy Alston, Bruce Cowley, Chelsey Drake, Marissa Freund, Michael Borsky, Kerry Morrow, Philippa Stone, Kelvin Barry, Robin Bishop, Bruce Cowley, Elizabeth Hallett, and Bruce McLennan.
The Takeovers Panel provides a forum for peer review of takeovers activity, aiming to be more efficient, less formal and more expeditious than the courts.
For the first time, the majority of the Panel membership will be women.
The federal government thanked the outgoing president Vickki McFadden and other outgoing members for their contributions.
