Zambia: FQM Appoints New CEO

First Quantum Minerals (FQM) has appointed chief operating officer Tristan Pascall as the new chief executive officer effective May next year.

Mr Pascall will take over from Philip Pascall who is retiring from his role but continue to serve as chairperson of the board, the company has announced in its market update.

"After a thorough search process, we are very pleased to appoint Tristan Pascall as FQM's next chief executive officer. Tristan has demonstrated impressive leadership in his current role as chief operating officer as he navigated the successful ramp-up of our largest asset through the challenging environment presented by the global pandemic," FQM chair of the nominating and governance committee and lead independent director Robert Harding said.

Mr Harding said Mr Pascall's previous hands-on leadership experience of eight years in Zambia and four years in Panama had given him a deep knowledge of FQM's assets, operating teams and local partners.
