Stratex International Plc

('Stratex' or 'the Company') 

Retirement of Chairman


Stratex International Plc, the AIM-quoted exploration and development company focused on gold and base metals in West Africa and Turkey, where it holds a significant interest in a producing gold mine, announces the retirement of Chairman Christopher Hall with effect from 31 December 2016.  Christopher will be replaced as Chairman by Peter Addison, the Company’s Independent Non-Executive Director. Peter has been a Director of Stratex since 2008.

Christopher, who joined Stratex in 2008 and was appointed Chairman in 2011, had been planning to retire in 2017 and, following the appointment of Marcus Engelbrecht as Chief Executive in September, on the retirement of founding CEO Bob Foster, he has decided that the time is now right to step down from the Board.

His successor Peter Addison, who will take over the Chairmanship on 1 January 2017, commented: “The Board is extremely grateful to Christopher for his leadership and the valuable contribution he has made to the success of the Company.”.

Peter joined Stratex in 2008 as an experienced non-executive director and chairman. He was a solicitor and practiced in the City for over 20 years before joining English Trust, a corporate advisory bank.  Peter specialised in providing corporate finance advice to a wide range of public companies in the UK and Ireland. He was previously Chairman of Qualceram Shires plc, a listed Irish company, and of AIM-quoted SiRViS IT plc.
