Nomination Policy Nomination Policy



  1. This Policy aims to set out key principles for nomination and/or re-appointment of a candidate to the board of directors (the “Board” and each director of the Board, a “Director”) of Kerry Logistics Network Limited (the “Company”).


Policy Statement


  1. With a view to achieving a sustainable and balanced development, the Company has noted the importance of the Board and/or Nomination Committee’s role in ensuring the Board has a balance of skills, experience and diversity of perspectives and on matters of succession planning, in particular the chairman and the chief execution of the Company. The Nomination Committee must evaluate and assess the optimal composition of the Board, taking into account the Company’s culture, strategies and objectives.


Key Principles


  1. Diversity: In line with the Board Diversity Policy of the Company, selection of candidates will be based on diversity, including but not limited to gender, age, cultural and educational background, professional experience, skills, knowledge, management experience, ethnicity and length of service. These factors are for reference only, and not meant to be exhaustive and decisive. The Nomination Committee has the discretion to nominate any person, as it considers appropriate.


  1. Availability: Each Board member must be able to devote sufficient time to the Board.


  1. Independence: Each independent non-executive Director must satisfy the independence requirements of the Rules Governing the Listing of Securities on The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited (the “Listing Rules”) as amended from time to time.


  1. Integrity: Each Board member must act with integrity, lead by example, and promote the desired culture to instill and continually reinforce values of acting lawfully, ethically and responsibly. He or she must have the character, experience and integrity and be able to demonstrate a standard of competence commensurate with his or her position as a Director.




  1. The Nomination Committee shall review the information obtained from the candidate and seek clarification, where required. The Nomination Committee shall then nominate suitable candidate(s) to the Board for it to consider and at its discretion make recommendations to shareholders for election or re-election as non-executive Directors at general meetings, or for it to consider and approve to appoint as non-executive Directors to fill casual vacancies.


  1. The Board shall have the final decision and ultimate responsibility on all matters relating to its recommendation of candidates to stand for election or re-election at any general meeting, and the selection and appointment of Directors to fill casual vacancies.


  1. The Nomination Committee shall meet to consider the performance of the Board and the need to refresh the Board to avoid entrenchment and to attract fresh thinking. It shall also consider board succession planning considerations, and to perform periodic reviews of such plan.
