Alabama Graphite Corp. (CNSX:ALP,FWB:1AG) appointed Ron S. Roda as President of the Company. Mr. Roda is the former managing director at Citigroup and brings over 20 years of experience in building early stage enterprises.
As quoted in the press release:
Ron brings over 20 years of experience in building early stage enterprises, operations management, banking and financial markets to Alabama Graphite. Most recently he was managing director, head of North America product control for the investment bank at Citigroup. Ron has a BSc. in Biochemistry and an MBA, both from the University of Toronto. He is also a Canadian Chartered Professional Accountant.
Ron has been involved as a consultant to Alabama Graphite for the past several months and has been instrumental in securing the new Ontario Hearst Graphite Project near Zenyatta Ventures. Ron commented, “Having two graphite projects in the best mining jurisdictions in the world will hold the company in good stead as we proceed to the economics phase. The prospects of advancing these exploration projects to development are awesome given the recent closure of the only producing graphite mine in North America.”
Alabama Graphite Corp. CEO, Daniel Spine, said:
Over the past several months I have enjoyed working with Ron on the strategic plan for Alabama Graphite. We are now at a stage where we require more management depth and experience, especially with the acquisition of the Hearst Graphite project. I am overjoyed that Ron has accepted the Company’s Presidency and I look forward to working together on the day to day duties of moving Alabama Graphite forward towards being THE source for supply to the domestic Graphite market in the USA.
