The Board of Directors of Tidd Ross Todd Limited and TRT Australia have announced the appointment of current Board Member and Independent Director, Mr Bruce Nixon to the position of TRT Board Chairperson effective from 1 March 2022.
This appointment was made due to the planned succession and retirement of the current Chairperson from the TRT Board, Mr Jerry Rickman. Mr Rickman has served as Chairperson for over 27 years.
“TRT has reached several key milestones in recent years. With TRT’s founder, Dave Carden (91), retiring from the Board and the new business focus initiated by the Made Possible brand refresh, both in 2021, the time was right to progress this plan”, said Mr Rickman.
“It’s been a pleasure working with the Carden family over many years, particularly with Dave Carden who is a rare mix of entrepreneur, brilliant engineer, and successful businessman. Dave has always recognised the importance of his team by putting people ahead of profits,” he concluded.
Mr Nixon was appointed as an Independent Director to the TRT Board in 2018, bringing with him a wealth of business and governance experience. In addition to his involvement with TRT, Mr Nixon also serves as an Executive Director of the Power Farming Group and as an independent Director of Spectrum Dairies and Connell Contractors.
“Jerry has made a significant contribution in his long tenure to lead TRT to be in the strong position it is in today. I look forward to the opportunity to help guide TRT into its next phase of growth alongside Directors Bruce and Robert Carden, and Chief Operations Officer Lawrence Baker,” said Mr Nixon.
TRT will look to appoint a new independent Director in the coming months to replace the role vacated by Mr Nixon.
