Alice Queen Ltd - Alice Queen initiates series of board changes entering 2020
Alice Queen has made a series of changes to the company’s board

Alice Queen Ltd (ASX:AQX) has initiated a series of changes to the company's board as it enters a new decade with a refreshed leadership team.

After serving as a director of Alice Queen since 2009, Phillip Harman has resigned as non-executive chairman with the baton passed on to Patrick Gowan with immediate effect.

Gowans is a partner of Melbourne-based law firm Quinert Rodda and Associates, which acts as legal advisors to Alice Queen.

He has more than 10 years’ experience in corporate and commercial law with a focus on equity capital markets, ASX compliance and corporate governance, which includes advising several ASX-listed mining exploration entities.

“Very excited to be bringing in Patrick”

Alice Queen managing director Andrew Buxton said, “Alice Queen was very fortunate to have had Phillip as our chairman and director over the past decade and his wisdom, guidance and experience will be sorely missed.

“I thank him for his dedication and service to Alice Queen and I, along with the rest of the Alice Queen team, wish him all the best for his future endeavours.

“We are very excited to be bringing in Patrick as our new chairman and look forward to working with him and leveraging his extensive knowledge and experience for the benefit of our shareholders.”

New executive director

Alice Queen has also appointed Dale McCabe to the board as an executive director with immediate effect.

McCabe was instrumental in supporting the foundation of Alice Queen in 2012, including the provision of operational support and assisting with the raising of seed capital for the company.

Following its establishment, McCabe continued to support the operations of Alice Queen and future capital raisings before officially joining the company in 2015, at which point he oversaw the establishment of exploration projects and operational aspects while continuing to support fundraising efforts.

Prior to his tenure at Alice Queen, McCabe spent more than 20 years in the IT industry across various industry sectors.

Buxton added, “Dale has been immensely valuable to Alice Queen since its inception, and we look forward to continuing to work with him in his new capacity.”

Vacant director position filled

Former Echo Resources board member Anthony McIntosh has agreed to join Alice Queen’s board as a non-executive director effective from today.

He fills a seat on the board that has been left vacant by Andrew Muir, who has made the difficult decision to resign his post as a non-executive director so that he can focus on his other existing board and management commitments, including in his role as managing director of ASX-listed NTM Gold Ltd (ASX:NTM).

Buxton continued, “While we are sad to see Andrew leave the Alice Queen board, we understand his decision to leave was not an easy one, so on behalf of the board we thank him for his dedication and contribution to the company during his time with us, and wish him nothing but the best for the future.

“We are, however, delighted to have secured someone with the calibre of Anthony to succeed Andrew and we look forward to working with him as we seek to advance our portfolio of highly prospective projects in Queensland and New South Wales.”

Presenting at CEO Session

Alice Queen's managing director Andrew Buxton will be presenting the company's story to investors at the Proactive CEO Session in Melbourne tomorrow.
