Board of Directors

Board Composition

Crew’s Board members bring together an extensive mix of experience, expertise, and perspectives, all of which reflect the diverse nature of the business environment in which we operate. Our Corporate GEHS&S Committee annually reviews the skills and experience of the current Board members to assess whether the Board’s skills and experience need to be strengthened in a specific area.

Average Board Tenure as of 2021*

* We have continued to maintain an optimal balance between board tenure and new board member renewal, which supports Crew’s ability to evolve and adapt with fresh ideas and diversity of thought while maintaining the corporate memory and understanding.

Board Diversity

The Board believes that considering the broadest group of individuals who have the skills, knowledge, experience, and character required to provide the leadership needed to achieve our business objectives, without reference to their age, gender, race, ethnicity or religion, is in the best interests of Crew and all of its stakeholders. The Board recognizes the benefits of diversity within the Board and management levels but will not compromise its principles by imposing mandatory quotas or targets. In early 2015, the Corporate GEHS&S Committee recommended, and the Board approved, a formal written Diversity Policy founded on these principles.

To ensure the effectiveness of this policy, the Corporate GEHS&S Committee will monitor the process undertaken in connection with the selection of nominees for directors or candidates for executive positions at Crew to ensure the positions and the skills, knowledge, experience and character of any candidates, including women candidates, are being fairly considered relative to other candidates. The Committee will also periodically review the number of women serving on the Board or in management to evaluate whether it is desirable to adopt additional requirements or policies with respect to the diversity of the Board and management.

Board Composition Change

Crew makes ongoing efforts to refresh our Board to enhance the overall skill set and manage tenure. Mr. David Smith retired as CEO of Keyera effective December 31, 2020, and concurrently confirmed his intention not to stand for re-election to Crew’s Board at the shareholder meeting in 2021. As a result of the retirement of Mr. Smith and in keeping with Crew’s ongoing Board renewal effort and continued prioritization of Board diversity, the Corporate Governance and EHS&S Committee identified and considered a number of candidates and thereafter approved Ms. Gail A. Hannon as a director nominee for 2021. Ms. Gail A. Hannon was approved as a Board member effective May 20, 2021.
