PERTH ( – ASX-listed gold miner Resolute Mining on Wednesday announced a new management structure in an effort to drive innovation, growth, improved communications and value for shareholders.

The changes created a number of new roles within six core business functions, with the number of senior executives increasing from three to six.

The key changes had resulted in the appointment of David Kelly in the new position of GM corporate strategy, Paul Henharen as the new GM for project development and the elevation of the existing position of GM for exploration to a CEO report line.

Meanwhile, a new position of GM for people, culture and information had also been created, and a recruitment process for the role had started.

Further, the existing positions of chief business development officer and GM for human resources and administration had been made redundant, which would result in Peter Venn and Marshall Hestelow leaving the company.

“Resolute has been a proven gold producer for more than 25 years. Today’s announced restructure is part of an ongoing organisational transformation driven by a new commitment to deliver greater value for shareholders from our operating experience and success,” said MD and CEO John Welborn.

“We operate in a volatile industry with high risk and dynamic pressures. Our management structure will continue to evolve to allow Resolute to be a more agile organisation that can deliver growth and profitability. We will achieve this by applying the best possible skill sets in roles that are clearly defined and aligned to best enable Resolute to achieve its principal purpose: rewarding our shareholders.”
