WOB member and Google Executive appointed to board of ASX company

Women on Boards is delighted to announce the appointment of innovation and digital transformation executive and Women on Boards member, Susan Wheeldon-Steele, to the board of ASX listed, Centuria Capital (CNI).
Ruth Medd, Executive chair of Women on Boards, who assisted Centuria in the search for a new Non-Executive-Director, said Wheeldon-Steele’s formidable and diverse skill would bring a new and important set of expertise to the board. Wheeldon-Steele is the first woman to be appointed to the board of the ASX specialist investment manager.

Wheeldon-Steele is the Head of Sales for Google, having previously held senior roles in Australia and the UK across a diverse range of industries including global law firms DLA Piper and King & Wood Mallesons, Virgin Australia & Virgin Atlantic, AMP Capital and Groupon.

She has been a member of Women on Boards for some years and completed a range of programs where she came to the attention of WOB principals.

However, Ruth Medd said the new search algorithm being utilised on the WOB website, had also put Wheeldon-Steele into the short list of candidates requested by Centuria Chair, Garry Charny.

“WOB offers some very attractive options for companies seeking female Non-Executive-Directors – ranging from complimentary vacancy posting through to short-listing and search at www.womenonboards.net/en-AU/Board-Positions/Post-New-Board,” Medd said.

Wheeldon-Steele, said she was delighted with her appointment to the board.

“I am thrilled to be joining a board and company that has such strong foundations and deep industry expertise, combined with a genuine enthusiasm for change to future proof the business and drive aggressive growth.”

Centuria chair Garry Charny said: "We are delighted to have someone of Susan's calibre and unique skill set, particularly in the digital space, to join the Board at a time of major growth for the Company. She is a step towards the future."
