The board of Platinum Asset Management has appointed a non-executive independent director.
Stephen Menzies will be Platinum’s fourth non-executive independent directors and will join the other four executive directors at the company’s board.
Menzies is also a director of Century Australia Investments and chairman of the Centre for Quantum Computation & Communication Technology.
He retired as a partner at Ashurst law firm last year and until his retirement was consistently ranked as one of Australia’s leading corporate lawyers.
As head of China practice for Ashurst, he oversaw the Shanghai and Beijing offices of that firm and as a senior lawyer he managed legal work of significant projects in capital markets and mergers including some of the largest transactions in Australia.
“We welcome Stephen because his legal background will complement the skills of other directors,” Platinum chairman Michael Cole said.
