Galan Lithium Ltd (ASX:GLN) has appointed Daniel Jiménez Schuster to the company's board as an independent non-executive director.

Schuster is a civil engineer and has worked for Chile-based Sociedad QuÍmica y Minera de Chile (NYSE:SQM) for 28 years.

His last position at SQM was as vice president of sales of lithium, iodine and industrial chemicals where he formulated the commercial strategy and marketing of the company’s industrial products.

During this role, Schuster was responsible for more than US$900 million worth of estimated sales in 2018.

Testament “to the calibre of our projects”

Galan Lithium chairman Nathan McMahon said: “People with Daniel’s experience, particularly in the South American lithium industry, are not easy to find.

“That Daniel agreed to join the Galan board is further testament to the calibre of our projects and the quality of work we have achieved to date.

“Daniel’s experience will assist us greatly at this important time in the development of the Candelas project with the imminent announcement of the mineral resource estimate, the pre-feasibility study slated for commencement during the fourth quarter 2019 and as we potentially transition from explorer to developer.”

Leading lithium consultant

Since leaving SQM Schuster has been a leading consultant to the lithium industry focusing on market intelligence, forecasting and lithium business strategy.
