Global Lithium Resources (GL1) has appointed Ron Mitchell as Managing Director, effective June 1.

Mr Mitchell joined the board on March 1, 2022 as Executive Director – Markets & Growth.

He has more than 25 years of experience in senior commercial, strategy and business development and held senior roles at Tinaqi Lithium Corporation and Talison Lithium.

Additionally, he is the inaugural Chairman of LME-listed Lithium Committee.

As Managing Director, Mr Mitchell will be responsible for all strategic partnership discussions, day-to-day activities and business growth opportunities.

“I am very pleased to accept the role of Managing Director at GL1, a company that is well-positioned in terms of having two highly prospective lithium exploration projects in two prominent mining jurisdictions here in Western Australia,” Mr Mitchell said.

“I look forward to building GL1 into a global lithium brand and am committed to the long-term success of the company, our shareholders, and the broader industry.”

The search for a Managing Director began at the beginning of the year and Global Lithium believes Mr Mitchell is the ideal candidate to lead the company in its next stage of growth.

“Whilst we had commenced an executive search to identify the right person to lead the company in its next stage of growth towards development and production, over the last couple of months it became evident that we already had the right person for the job on the team,” Non-Executive Chair Warrick Hazeldine commented.

“Ron is truly a leader in the lithium space and his knowledge of the global lithium market is second to none. We look forward to the future with Ron as MD and we are confident the transitional stage ahead for the company is going to be an exciting one.”

Global Lithium was down 0.3 per cent with shares trading at $1.64 at 12:37 pm AEST.
