David who has sat on the board as a director since August 2021, succeeds Colin Bell, who is stepping back into a director role after serving as Chairperson since February 2021.

Schlam is dealing with these changes in thoughtful and innovative ways which will benefit all stakeholders for years to come,” said David.
David worked as President and CEO of CQMS Razer (CR Mining) for over nine years, where he grew the business into a diversified global operation and expanded product lines to include digital technologies.
