Sector Expert: Kimberly Ann
Kimberly Ann, Peruvian Precious Metals Corp.'s vice president of corporate development, is a corporate development and communications specialist with over 20 years of marketing experience in branding, investor relations and finance. In the past three years, Ann has assisted in raising over $90M in equity financing and directed three major junior mining rebranding projects. While at Prodigy Gold, Ann was responsible for all aspects of the company's corporate communication program, facilitating equity financings, generating analyst coverage, participating in key aspects of corporate M&A activities and generating widespread recognition of the company's successful transition from explorer to mine developer. Ann attended the University of Washington, majoring in business and marketing.
The management team that took Prodigy Gold from a $25 million market cap junior to a $340 million buyout in less than three years is back with a new company that it believes is tailor made for applying its formula for success. In this interview with The Gold Report, CEO Brian Maher and VP of Corporate Development Kimberly Ann discuss their latest project, how they are "managing through change" and what differentiates them in an industry of over-promoting and under-delivering juniors. Clear communication is part of the formula, but there is more than talk when it comes to advancing a great project in South America's largest gold producing region.
