Philippine Metals has a new chief executive officer, with Craig Lindsay appointed to the top job after the recent resignation of Feisal Somji.
Craig Lindsay was a previous member of the company’s Board of Directors and has more than 20 years’ experience in corporate finance, investment banking and business development in North America and Asia. He is currently also the president and chief executive officer of Otis Gold Corporation and managing director of Arbutus Grove Capital Corporation.
Philippine Metals’ president Marshall Farris says the company welcomes Craig Lindsay’s appointment. “A former resident of Hong Kong, Craig Lindsay was a senior executive at The Pacific Rim Group, which provided financial advisory, venture capital and related services to Asian and North American clients. He was a co-founder and CFO of OneAsia.com, an innovative B2C internet retailer of Asian language entertainment products, which was acquired by tom.com Limited.”
Philippine Metals is focused on the exploration, discovery and development of highly prospective copper and copper-gold deposits in the Philippines. Its initial projects, Taurus, Malitao and Dilong, are anticipated to become quality, highly prospective targets.
