New Gold Announces Senior Management Reorganization

Canada NewsWire

TORONTO, Dec. 10, 2018 /CNW/ - New Gold Inc. ("New Gold" or the "Company") (TSX:NGD) (NYSE American:NGD) announces a reorganization of the senior leadership team.

As part of the strategy to reposition New Gold for long-term success, the Company's asset base has been reduced to two core operating assets that include the Rainy River and New Afton Mines and the Blackwater project, following the divestment of the Mesquite and Peak Mines earlier in the year. As a result, the senior management team has been reorganized to better align the corporate structure with the smaller asset base.  

In connection with this restructuring, the following positions have been eliminated:

  • VP, Treasurer and Technology (Martin Wallace)

  • VP, Planning and Advisory (Kashif Farooq)

  • VP, Projects (Peter Woodhouse)

  • VP, Reporting and Tax (Rajesh Deora)

  • VP, Exploration (Mark Petersen)

To strengthen the depth of technical and operational experience at the senior corporate level, the Company will be appointing a Vice President, Technical Services in the near future. Reporting directly to the Chief Executive Officer, this position will assume the responsibilities of creating organic growth, including projects and exploration, as well as providing technical and operational oversight to the organization. 

"Today's announcement marks another step forward in our strategy to reposition New Gold for the future.  It was a difficult, but necessary decision to readjust the size of the corporate team to reflect our new reality," stated Renaud Adams, President and Chief Executive Officer. He continued, "On behalf of management and the Board of Directors, I want to acknowledge the significant contributions of each of these talented individuals, and we wish them all the best with their future endeavours."
