Welschinger was appointed to the board last year initially as a non-executive director and will transition to the executive management team, effective immediately.
Financial skills to complement additions
Managing director Ryan Parkin said: “Remy’s significant corporate experience and wide-ranging financial skills will further complement the recent additions to the executive management team.
“We are delighted to appoint Remy to lead ongoing negotiations and wide-ranging developments for strategic investment and offtake opportunities for San José.”
The broader advancements in the company have seen several recent technical, corporate and in-country key appointments including the appointment of Nicole Morcombe as corporate development manager.
Morcombe will provide valuable experience and commercial acumen from roles in equity capital markets.
Parkin added: “The board is pleased to build a high-calibre and multi-focused team as the San Jose Project progresses.
“Impending supply imbalance and inevitable demand for battery-grade lithium chemicals in the EU is rapidly approaching, and Infinity remains extremely well-positioned to capitalise on the EU’s requirements for locally sourced battery materials.”
Infinity Lithium is gearing up its San José Lithium Project in Spain to be an essential component in the EU’s development of a vertically integrated lithium-ion battery supply chain.
