Aviva Corporation chief financial officer takes on company secretary role

Aviva Corporation (ASX: AVA) has appointed Stef Weber to the role of company secretary in addition to his recent appointment as chief financial officer.

Chartered accountant and resources veteran Stef Weber’s appointment as chief financial officer was announced on Monday December 5.

Weber has almost 20 years’ experience in the resources industry, with 16 of those spent with South Africa-based coal and base metals miner Exxaro Resources (JSE: EXX).

Most recently he was finance manager and company secretary for Exxaro’s operations and projects in Australia.

Weber replaces Brad Boyle as company secretary following Boyle’s resignation.

Aviva recently returned high grade results from further drilling at the Bumbo Base Metals Project in West Kenya that indicate potential to extend the 1.68 million tonnes Inferred JORC Resource.

Aviva is planning further infill and extension holes for Bumbo which should be completed in the March quarter of 2012.
