Board of Directors
The appointment of Comair's Directors is a function of the entire Board, based on recommendations made by the Nominations Committee. Under the Company's Memorandum of Incorporation (currently still named the Articles of Association), a third of the Directors retire by rotation each year and are eligble for re-election by shareholders at the Annual General Meeting.
Comair has a unitary structure where the roles of the Chairman and the CEO are separate. The numbers of Non-Executive Directors, together with a strong independent element, are sufficient enough to ensure that no single individual has unfettered decision-making power and authority.
The Board comprises six Non-Executive Independent Directors, four Non-Executive Directors and four Executive Directors. They are considered to be appropriately skilled with regard to their responsibilities and Comair's activities.
The Board Members are involved in all material business decisions, enabling Directors to contribute to the strategic and general guidance of management and the business.
