Finders Resources recruit FD

Precious metal miners appoint James Wentworth as finance director, succeeding Mike Stirzaker

GOLD AND SILVER mining business Finders Resources has recruited James Wentworth as its finance director.

Wentworth, a trained solicitor, will be responsible for completing a financing package for the expansion of the company’s copper division.

He previously worked for three years in the mergers and acquisitions division of Lehman Brothers, based in New York, before joining Goldman Sachs’ principal investment team.

Wentworth takes up his new role in February. He was most recently a director and investment committee member at Sydney-based private equity business Champ. He has spent the last nine years at Champ.

He succeeds Mike Stirzaker who steps down as FD to take a fund manager role at a Sydney-based natural resources company. Stirzaker will continue to work at Finders Resources as a non-executive director.

Russell Fountain, Finders chairman said: “James’s extensive experience in raising debt and equity capital will be critical to ensuring that this rapid expansion proceeds on a firm financial footing.”
