GRATOMIC APPOINTS LYNNE BRAND TO REPLACE STEVEN GRAY AS DIRECTOR
Gratomic Inc. is replacing Steven Gray on the board of directors at Gratomic. The company's general manager, Lynne Brand, will step in as an interim director until the company can find a suitable candidate to serve as an independent director with production experience. This comes as the company is transitioning from junior exploration company to an operating company. Mr. Gray will continue serving as a qualified person as the company believes his position as a QP is better served off the board.
The company is pleased to appoint Ms. Brand as the interim director replacing Mr. Gray. Ms. Brand joined Gratomic in 2012, initially joining as the general mine manager at Gratomic's flagship Aukam project. Few, if any, have as much value to add to the board as Ms. Brand does in this temporary position. This exercise is not without purpose; the board sees this as an opportunity for Ms. Brand to build up experience as a director as she will shortly becoming the marketing director in Namibia. This will allow her to instill the same values and principles that govern the main Gratomic board into her future role as marketing director.
Mr. Gray is currently acting as QP for the continuing resource drilling program at Aukam. The company believes his time will be more efficiently spent committed fully to his duties as a QP without the added responsibilities of an independent director.
"It has been an honour to serve on the board with Steven. We appreciate everything that he has done for the company and we look forward to continuing to work with him as QP," said Arno Brand, chief executive officer and president.
"I am looking forward to stepping into this important position and accepting the responsibility that comes with it. I am excited to bring the knowledge and experience of our Canadian board members back to Namibia," said Ms. Brand, interim director.
