Brisbane-based OceanaGold has appointed Gerard Bond as its new president and chief executive officer, effective 4 April.
Bond, who will also serve on the gold producer’s board of directors, was most recently finance director and chief financial officer for Newcrest Mining between January 2012 and January 2022. He has extensive global finance and resources industry experience and has held a number of senior executive roles across Australia as well as Europe.
He was selected following an extensive executive search by OceanaGold and will replace Scott Sullivan on the effective date as Sullivan once again becomes chief operating officer.
OceanaGold’s collection of established operating assets includes the Didipio mine in the Philippines; the Macraes and Waihi operations in New Zealand; and Haile gold mine in the U.S.
