Pan Global Resources Inc. (TSXV: PGZ) (OTC Pink: PGNRF) ("Pan Global" or the "Company") is pleased to announce effective August 16, 2022 the appointment of Andrew "Andy" Marshall as Chief Financial Officer ('CFO"), replacing Christina Cepeliauskas who will remain as a consultant with the Company in a transitional capacity for a period.
Mr. Marshall is a Chartered Accountant and Chartered Financial Analyst with more than 11 years of finance and CFO experience in the mining sector. He has an extensive background in financial and risk management; corporate reporting, ESG management; M&A transactions and working with international jurisdictions. Most recently, he served as Chief Financial Officer at First Mining Gold Corp. and assisted in building the company's gold project portfolio during its initial period of growth in 2015 when it acquired eight companies in just over one year. Prior to this, Andy held finance roles at two Vancouver based TSX/NYSE MKT-listed silver mining companies with operations in Mexico and Canada. Mr. Marshall started his career with PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP in London and moved to Vancouver in 2008.
Tim Moody, Pan Global President and CEO, states: "We are very pleased to welcome Andy to our growing senior management team. His background in finance, mining and project development will be a great fit as we continue expanding the La Romana copper discovery and explore new targets at the Escacena project in southern Spain. On behalf of the Board of Pan Global, I thank Christina for the excellent support and professionalism she has provided as CFO on a part-time basis over a number of years. We are very pleased that Christina has agreed to continue supporting Pan Global during a transition period."
"I am very excited to join the team at Pan Global and support the next stage of corporate growth. The work and results to date are impressive and we are entering a pivotal period for the advancement of the Escacena project which is in an excellent jurisdiction for development; and all this at a time when the macro outlook for copper and tin has never looked better," stated Andy Marshall.
Mr. Marshall has been granted 750,000 stock options and 200,000 restricted share units ("RSU's") of the Company. The stock options and RSU's were granted pursuant to the Company's Omnibus Equity Incentive Compensation Plan. Each stock option entitles the holder to purchase one common share of the Company at a price of $0.47 per common share for a period of five years from the date of grant. The RSU's will vest over 18 months from the effective date of Mr. Marshall's appointment, with 2/3 (133,333) vesting 12 months after the effective date and the balance (66,667) vesting 18 months after the effective date.
