Lundin Mining announced today that its president and CEO Marie Inkster will be stepping down at the end of the year for personal reasons.
Inkster joined Lundin Mining in 2008 and served as Chief Financial Officer for 10 years prior to being appointed President and CEO.
Lundin Mining’s corporate development and investor relations senior vice president, Peter Rockandel, will take the reins.
“Peter is a well known and respected executive in mining capital markets with an exceptional track record,” said Lukas Lundin, Chair of Lundin Mining, in a news release. “In his current role, Peter has led strategic progress and delivered value for stakeholders, including the successful acquisition of Chapada. Peter’s intimate knowledge of Lundin Mining surpasses his time with the Company, having supported, through previous positions, most of the Company’s financing and acquisition efforts over the last decade and a half. The Board believes that Peter is an excellent fit, focused on the future of the Company in achieving its long-term strategic goals.”
