PM Capital Global Companies Fund (PGF) and PM Capital Asian Opportunities Fund (PAF) have announced the appointment of Chris Knoblanche as a non-executive director of the company.
The board had unanimously resolved the decision to appoint Knoblanche and shareholders would be asked to ratify his appointment at the next annual general meeting.
Current director of the company Andrew McGill had indicated a likely desire to resign from the board, effective after the issue of the company’s 30 June 2019 financial accounts.
Should this be formalised, Knoblanche would be appointed company chairman and chairman of the nominations and corporate governance committees.
Knoblanche was currently the non-executive chairman of iSelect and a board member of Latitude Financial, and the Environment Protection Authority of NSW.
He had previously served as managing director and head of Citigroup Corporate and Investment Banking Australia and NZ, partner in Caliburn (now Greenhill Investment Bank), and chief executive of Andersen Australia and Andersen Business Consulting – Asia.
