Azure Minerals welcomes new non-executive chairman, Peter Ingram

Azure Minerals (ASX: AZS) has appointed Peter Ingram as non-executive chairman, while Tony Rovira has stepped down as chairman to focus on his role as managing director.

Ingram brings more than 40 years of experience in Australian mining and exploration and was previously managing director of Universal Resources, before its merger with Vulcan Resources. He is now a non-executive director of the merged entity, Altona Minerals.

Other previous roles include managing director of Metana Minerals, Eastmet and Australia Oriental Minerals, and a founding councillor of the Association of Mining and Exploration Companies.

Meanwhile, after retiring by rotation at Azure’s annual general meeting, John Saleeba decided not to seek re-election.

Saleeba is looking to reduce his workload and focus on his family as he moves towards retirement.
