“Strengthen the depth and breadth of our Board“
ioneer executive chairman James Calaway said: “We are delighted to welcome Rose and Margaret to the ioneer Board, whose diverse backgrounds, expertise, and extensive networks in the United States will significantly strengthen the depth and breadth of our Board.
“Rose brings with her decades of experience in ESG and sustainability governance, advocacy and strategy, and is uniquely positioned to support ioneer as we grow to become the largest domestic supplier of lithium and an important voice in electrification in the United States.
“At Dow Chemical Co, Margaret worked across all aspects of the development and operations of the company’s facilities, leading engineering development and construction of Dow’s largest global operations, and this will greatly assist us as we move into the execution phase of Rhyolite Ridge.
“I know I speak for all of our board members when I say we think Rose and Margaret are the perfect complements to our Board’s skills, and adding their experience is timely indeed.”

Following the retirement of Pat Elliott, the board undertook an extensive search process for his successor.
The search provided the opportunity to broaden and strengthen the expertise of the board, reflecting the evolving needs of the company as it nears the construction phase of its Rhyolite Ridge Lithium-Boron Project, particularly about large-scale chemical plant construction and ESG experience.
These two critical areas of experience and commitment are expertly provided by these two outstanding new non-executive directors.
