Governance

ELSA’s operations are guided by a board of directors, including an Australian Managing Director (MD) and an Australian Chair. The Board has a majority of Australian citizens, complemented by directors nominated by our parent company, who bring a deep understanding of our parent company’s leading edge technologies.
As a contractor in the Australian Defence and national security sector, ELSA has a clear appreciation of the risks that must be managed in Australia’s interests. The company operates under a suite of corporate governance documents, which mandate that the positions of MD and Chair, as well as the majority of Board members, must be held by Australian nationals. The Board is assisted by four Board committees, each focussing on a particular aspect of the company’s operations and reporting to the Board quarterly.
The Board continues to guide ELSA’s transformation plan which will, amongst other benefits, result in substantial investment in our ICT infrastructure to enhance the company’s security posture and ensure local control of information assets.
