The Gold Industry Group closed the year with the announcement of three additional new Directors at yesterday’s Annual General Meeting.
Evolution Mining Group Manager External and Indigenous Relations Anika McManus, Newmont Australia Group Executive Sustainability and External Relations Kenneth Ramsey, and Newcrest Mining Manager External Affairs and Social Performance Ben Bryant were welcomed to the diverse leadership team.
The Gold Industry Group (GIG) goes from strength to strength welcoming AngloGold Ashanti Australia’s Vice President for Corporate Affairs, Community and Human Resources, Andrea Maxey and Gold Road Resources’ General Manager for Capability and Culture, Stuart Jenner, to its Board of Directors.
Both Ms Maxey and Mr Jenner bring a new level of diversity to the Board, with varied backgrounds, different roles and new skills.
Gold industry leader and Northern Star Resources Chief Executive Officer Stuart Tonkin joined the Gold Industry Group Board of Directors last week as he looks forward to working alongside the experienced team to grow the Group.
“There is a great opportunity to tell our story and show our support for the community as an industry. The gold industry is a significant contributor to the socio and economic fabric of our country and we often don’t tell our story as well as some of the other resource sectors,” Mr Tonkin said.
Mining Non-Executive Director and champion for diversity, Sharon Warburton, is the second woman to join the Gold Industry Group (GIG) Board as a Director, following the appointment of Gold Fields Australia Vice President of Legal and Compliance, Kelly Carter, to Vice Chairperson in November 2016.
GIG Chairperson and Perth Mint Chief Executive Officer, Richard Hayes, said he was thrilled to welcome Ms Warburton and Ms Carter to the team.
