GOVERNANCE

Company Secretary

Ellies has engaged the services of an independent, professional company secretarial practice. The Company Secretary provides the Board as a whole and directors individually with detailed guidance as to how their responsibilities should be properly discharged in the best interest of the Group. The Company Secretary provides a central source of guidance and advice to the Board and within the business, on matters of ethics and good corporate governance.

The Company Secretary is subject to annual evaluation by the Board to ensure that the Company Secretary has the requisite competence, qualifications and experience to undertake the role and to ensure that the Company Secretary maintains an arm’s length relationship with the Board of Directors.

The Company Secretary is not a director of the Group or any of its subsidiaries, nor is he related or connected to any of the directors, thereby ensuring an independent arm’s length relationship.
