SYDNEY: BPM Minerals Limited announced the appointment of Christopher (Chris) Swallow as Chief Executive Officer, effective 5 February 2021.
Swallow will lead the BPM team with more than 15 years’ experience across both public and private sectors. Most recently Swallow worked in an operational capacity as the Corporate Development Officer for Guinea-focused gold explorer Predictive Discovery Limited and Minbos Resources Limited.
Chris previously worked in Strategic Communications as an Advisor to numerous ASX-listed Australian, North American and West African mineral explorers, covering a range of commodities including gold, nickel, zinc and copper.
Chris’ experience within this area of equity markets has allowed him to gain exposure to corporate strategy development and delivery, compliance with ASX listing rules and disclosures, as well as sound corporate governance practices.
Prior to this Swallow worked for one of Western Australia’s largest privately owned family businesses in a range of operational and business development roles and has also financed significant private and commercial property developments in Australia and northeast Asia.
Commenting on the appointment, BPM Chairman Paul Lloyd said: “Chris brings unique skills to BPM with his corporate and government experience and with a strong work ethic and dedication to achieving exploration outcomes, he has already made a strong contribution to the Company in an informal operational capacity.
Now as CEO he will be tasked with driving exploration programs across our three projects with drilling at the Nepean Nickel Project imminent. Chris will be based in Perth, Western Australia, working closely with our Australian-based Directors.”
BPM Minerals Limited (ASX:BPM) is a Perth-based gold, nickel and base-metal explorer with a portfolio of high-tenor projects located across some of Western Australia’s most prolific greenstone belts.
