Australian gold miner Westgold has confirmed that its chief executive officer Debbie Fullarton has resigned from the company, effective immediately, and has appointed Wayne Bramwell as managing director.
The Perth-based company said Fullarton’s position within the company has been terminated and it will no longer have a CEO role.
Bramwell’s appointment is also effective immediately.
Fullarton, who cited a desire to pursue other opportunities for her decision to exit, had been with Westgold for four years, also serving as CFO during her tenure.
Bramwell, who has 30 years corporate and technical experience, first joined Westgold as a non-executive director in February 2020 and has been executive director since July 2021.
He said of his new appointment: “There is now a clear mandate from the Board to deliver improved cash flows and returns to our shareholders and we remain on track to deliver FY22 guidance. The strategy is to simplify our business and empower our operating and corporate teams to challenge the status quo.
“Delivering safe mining with improved planning, better productivity, rigorous cost management and grade are the keys to our collective success and will deliver both our corporate objectives and development opportunities for our people.”
