Andrew Bassat, SEEK CEO and Co-Founder commented,
"I would like to thank Colin for his tremendous contribution to SEEK. Colin joined the Board just before SEEK listed on the ASX and it has been a genuine pleasure to work with Colin over the past 13 years. His very rational and considered thinking and challenge have been very valuable to me and to the organisation. He will be missed and we all wish him the best for his next steps."
Mr Carter's retirement was foreshadowed to shareholders at the 2017 Annual General Meeting and forms part of the Board's succession and renewal plan.

As communicated to shareholders at the 2017 Annual General Meeting, the Board is well advanced in its Non-Executive Director recruitment process.
