Astron Corporation (ATR) has appointed Tiger Brown as Managing Director, effective immediately.

Tiger will be taking over from Kang Rong who has been serving as Managing Director since December 2019.

Kang will remain Executive Director and Chief Marketing Officer of the company and will focus on global sales and marketing.

“The board has been impressed with Tiger’s capabilities and drive since his appointment to the board as Executive Director,” Chairman Gerard King commented.

“He has overseen a substantial body of work as part of the company’s prime focus to move the Donald mineral sands project, in Victoria, to commercialisation,” he said.
