Acacia Mining appoints COO

Acacia Mining has appointed its executive general manager of business improvement and planning as its chief operating officer (COO).

Ms Michelle Ash, who joined the gold producer in October 2013, has more than 20 years of experience within the mining and manufacturing industries across a range of senior roles.

“She has led the creation of our business improvement structures and strategy, playing an integral role in bringing more discipline into planning processes, enhancing operational performance and implementing our cultural change programme,” the FTSE 250 group said.

A key element of her new role will be to ensure Acacia fully realises the geological potential of its assets.

Chief executive officer (CEO) Brad Gordon said: “I feel that now is the appropriate time to split the role of CEO and COO to continue to embed and enhance the changes we have made since 2013 and Michelle’s technical expertise, people skills and energy make her a natural choice for the role.

She has already made a significant contribution to the evolution of the company over the past 18 months and I look forward to working closely with her as we seek to become a lowest cost quartile producer and realise the significant potential of our mines and our people.”
