Australian Transport News - - News -

TOLL GROUP has ap­pointed for­mer KPMG Asia Pa­cific chief op­er­at­ing of­fi­cer Ge­off Wil­son, left. to its board of di­rec­tors.

He be­comes the eighth and fi­nal ap­point­ment to the Toll board fol­low­ing the re­build­ing of the board this year.

Toll Hold­ings re­ported an an­nual loss of $1.43 bil­lion last year. It is owned by Ja­pan Post, which paid $6.5 bil­lion for the group in 2015. Wil­son, who served 35 years with KPMG, is fi­nan­cially savvy and is a Fel­low of the In­sti­tute of Char­tered Ac­coun­tants in Aus­tralia.

Toll Group’s chair­man John Mullen wel­comed Wil­son’s ap­point­ment to the board.

“His deep knowl­edge and ex­pe­ri­ence across mul­ti­ple mar­kets, in­clud­ing Ja­pan, and his lead­er­ship of large, dy­namic work­forces will be in­valu­able to Toll’s trans­for­ma­tion, gov­er­nance and fu­ture growth agenda,” Mullen says.

Wil­son will also as­sume the role of chair­man of Toll’s au­dit com­mit­tee. The Toll board now com­prises Mullen, Wil­son, Michael Byrne, Ku­nio Yokoyama, To­mo­hiro Yonezawa, Taneki Ono, Noboru Ichikura and No­rio Wakasa.
