The CBH Group has appointed Paul Sadleir as an Independent Director of the CBH Board, replacing Trent Bartlett who will retire from the Board after serving nine years.

CBH Chair Simon Stead said Mr Sadleir would continue to broaden the skills and experience of the Board, bringing strong commercial experience from his background in property development and infrastructure investment.

Mr Sadleir is currently a Non-Executive Director and Chair of the Nominations and Remuneration Committee of privately owned property and infrastructure investment group Perron Group Limited.

He is also Deputy Chair and Chair of the Business (Finance) Committee of Brightwater Care Group and holds roles including WA Councillor of the Australian Institute of Company Directors and member of Perth Catholic Archdiocese’s Property and Investment Committee.

Mr Sadleir’s most recent executive role was as Managing Director of Cedar Woods Properties Limited, an ASX300 property development company with operations across Australia, where he was ranked in the top 10 CEOs in the 2014 Australian Financial Review survey of the ASX’s largest companies.

Mr Sadleir will be appointed an Independent Director for a three-year term commencing at the conclusion of the next Annual General Meeting (AGM) to be held on 25 February 2021, with his position to be ratified by members at the 2022 AGM.

Mr Stead welcomed Mr Sadleir to the Board.

“CBH greatly values the experience of our Independent Directors whose abilities complement those of our Member Directors,” Mr Stead said.

“Paul brings a wealth of commercial, financial and risk management experience to the Board which will add great value to our co-operative."
