Woodside Welcomes New Member to its BoD

Australia’s Woodside has appointed Frank Cooper to its Board as a non-executive director effective 1 February 2013.  Cooper joins Woodside as an independent director.

Cooper has more than 35 years experience in corporate tax, specialising in the mining, energy and utilities sector, and is a partner of PricewaterhouseCoopers. He will retire from that firm on 31 December 2012. Prior to joining PricewaterhouseCoopers, Cooper was a partner of Ernst & Young and managing partner of Arthur Andersen. He was a director of Alinta Infrastructure Limited and Alinta Funds Management Limited from August 2005 until March 2006.

Cooper holds a Bachelor of Commerce. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Australia, a member of the Australian Institute of Company Directors and the Chairman of the Insurance Commission of Western Australia.

Erich Fraunschiel, who has served ten years on the Board, will retire on 28 February 2013.

Woodside Chairman, Michael Chaney, paid tribute to Fraunschiel’s contribution to the Board: “Erich has brought a wealth of corporate and  financial experience to the Board’s deliberations during his ten-year tenure. Woodside has achieved significant growth over that period, including  execution of  the Pluto LNG Project, expansion of the North West Shelf and the development of several oil projects off Western Australia.”
