New CEO appointed

International Graphite is pleased to announce the appointment of finance specialist Neil Rinaldi as Chief Executive Officer as the company prepares for the next stage of development.

Neil has had a successful career in the finance sector for over 20 years specialising in capital raising, asset acquisition and disposals, company structuring and positioning companies for growth.

After launching his career as an investment advisor at one of Australia’s premier investment firms, Neil has built an impressive track record in both Australia and Europe. He served as founding Managing Director of Truestone Capital Limited, a London based corporate advisory firm, focused on delivering results for companies in the Australian resources sector.

Neil’s outstanding career incorporates many senior leadership roles including CEO of ASX-listed Aziana Limited, a multi commodity exploration company with assets in Madagascar and Louisiana.  Subsequently, Neil was instrumental in the reverse takeover of Aziana Limited by Brainchip Limited (ASX:BRN) and continued as a Non-Executive Director during the transition period before resigning in November 2016.

IG Chairman Phil Hearse said, “We are very fortunate to secure Neil’s experience and knowledge as the company prepares to shift strategically from the development phase into funding and operation.

“Neil’s priority will be shaping the future strategic direction of the business and negotiating new funding pathways to ensure IG has a solid base for growth and the resources it needs to realise its full potential.”
