Governance Institute elects new president

— 1 minute read

The Governance Institute of Australia has elected senior corporate lawyer Andrew Horne as its new president, effective 1 January 2017.

Mr Horne, who has 25 years' experience working at ASX-listed companies, will be responsible for overseeing the organisation's "ambitious governance agenda", said a statement.

He has worked in a diverse range of sectors including food and beverage, hotels, retail, residential/commercial property and agriculture.


Mr Horne said governance is a "whole-of-organisation" issue.

"It requires a framework linking roles, authorities and accountabilities with strategic objectives to empower good decision-making, while clarifying which matters are ‘off-limits’," he said.

"And while there is widespread recognition in the business sector that good governance is a cornerstone for success, there is more to be done in the not-for-profit and public sectors and the wider community."
