Athabasca Minerals (AMI) has added Neil D. Manning to its board of directors following the departure of John Halliwell. The move is subject to TSX Venture’s final approval.
AMI’s CEO Robert Beekhuizen says: “Neil Manning’s appointment further strengthens and supports AMI’s board with proven C-suite leadership and strategic business skills that align with the increasing demands associated with the corporation’s evolving portfolio: namely its base aggregates division (AMI Aggregates), its silica sand division (AMI Silica and affiliated Duvernay and Montney in-basin project joint-ventures), and its technology-enabled, midstream aggregates division (Aggregates Marketing). Additionally, AMI’s management benefits from being able to leverage Neil’s insights and direction as an experienced board leader and former C-suite executive.”
Manning is currently board of director of TransForce International and was previously CEO and board director at Wajax. He was also president, chief operating officer and board director of Strongco and has served as a member of the University of Alberta School of Business Advisory Council.
