Altan Rio Minerals Limited (TSXV:AMO) has appointed experienced miner and financier David Talbot as Strategic Advisor – North America.
Initially, Mr Talbot was a mining engineer, with operating experience in South Africa, Australia and Europe.
He gravitated to the finance industry where he held many roles in global investment banks such as Deutsche Bank and BNP Paribas.
Altan Rio CEO, Paul Stephen, said Mr Talbot led the institutional energy sales business at leading private oil and gas research firm John S. Herold Inc. before its sale to IHS Markit in 2007.
He spent 10 years with Global Asset Manager, McKinley Capital as Director of Investments.
