“Proven track record”
Chief executive officer Phillips said: “We’re delighted to welcome Michael as our chief financial officer and the newest member of our fast-growing leadership team.
“We are entering an exciting phase for Piedmont as we prepare to allocate capital and ramp-up physical operations of our integrated lithium hydroxide business in North Carolina.
“Michael’s proven track record of developing and executing finance organisational strategy and solving complex issues will be invaluable to us as we operate as a US domiciled company.
“His background controllership, corporate governance, public company reporting, financial planning and analysis as well as long-term strategic planning make him a great addition to our Piedmont family.”
