ATH stakeholder questions absence of female directorship

THE absence of a female director on the Amalgamated Telecom Holdings Ltd board was highlighted at the annual general meeting of the organisation today.

The ATH Group of Companies held its annual general meeting at the Holiday Inn in Suva where shareholders were informed of the progress of the company and presented with the financials of the company.

A shareholder raised the question of why there were no female directors over the years and suggested that shareholders consider appointing a suitable female director.

ATH chief executive officer Ivan Fong said there were no restrictions on female director appointments.

He said if shareholders thought so, they were welcome to nominate a suitable candidate at the next AGM.

Mr Fong added the appointment would be based on qualification and merit.
