Australia: the meaning of 'non-executive director'

A few days ago, Dixon J., sitting in the Supreme Court of Victoria (Common Law Division), gave judgment in Jaques v AIG Australia Ltd [2014] VSC 269. The decision is noteworthy because of the discussion it contains of the meaning of 'non-executive director', the judge noting that in "... contemporary corporate governance theory, the role of independent, non-executive directors is encouraged" (para. 15).
