AAMEG ANNOUNCES TWO NEW BOARD MEMBERS
By AAMEG | 17 January 2018
AAMEG is pleased to announce the election of Jeffrey Quartermaine and Peter De Leo to its Board of Directors.
Jeffrey Quartermaine, CEO of Perseus Mining Limited, has over 30 years’ leadership experience in the minerals and energy industry in Africa, the Asia-Pacific and South America. During his time with Perseus, Jeffrey has been transformational in building the organisation’s operational credibility in Ghana and Côte d’lvoire. This includes establishing a strong “social licence to operate” in conjunction with senior government officials, traditional leaders, business stakeholders and local communities.
Peter De Leo, Managing Director of Lycopodium Limited is a civil engineer with over 29 years’ experience within the resources and infrastructure sectors. Successfully delivering many of Lycopodium’s pioneering and large-scale projects in Africa, Peter is a trusted advisor in the design, engineering and construction of resource projects. Peter brings first-hand understanding of the risks and challenges businesses face working on the continent, but also a sound appreciation of the benefits and opportunities that come with it.
I am honoured to welcome both Jeff and Peter to the AAMEG Board. We will benefit greatly from their insights and experience gained through their diverse backgrounds and areas of expertise. AAMEG looks forward to serving its members and growing as an effective member organisation through 2018 and beyond.
