Chris’ expertise, energy and infectious enthusiasm has served as an inspiration to our operating teams and he has been an important member of the executive team that has transformed Perseus into the high performing mid-tier gold company that it is today.
“We are also very excited about welcoming Dave Schummer to our ranks. Dave has a very deep knowledge of mining operations and leadership and he will work very well with our operating teams in Ghana, Cote d’Ivoire and, before long, Sudan. We are also looking forward to Dave’s contribution to our senior executive team and playing a key role in shaping the Company’s future.”
