Helix Resources Ltd (ASX:HLX) has appointed highly experienced director and corporate finance executive, Emmanuel Correia to the Board as a non-executive director, effective 1st November 2023.
Mr Correia’s appoinment is part of Helix Resources’ board and management transition plan which was devised to ensure strategic continuity focusing on the company’s key stakeholder relationships, its regional and advanced copper prospects while also enhancing the early-stage exploration experience of the Board.
He is a highly credentialed director with over 25 years’ public company and corporate finance experience. He has extensive capital markets experience having managed numerous capital raisings and IPOs for junior ASX- listed companies, as well as providing critical services such as corporate strategy, M&A and governance advice.
He was a founding director of broking and advisory firm Peloton Capital and Peloton Advisory and was also a founder of Cardrona Capital which specialised in providing advisory services to the small/mid cap market in Australia before being acquired by a UK-backed private advisory firm seeking expanded capabilities in Australia.
He is currently a director of several resources-focused public companies, including BPM Minerals, Pantera Minerals and Top End Energy.
“I am thrilled to welcome Emmanuel to the team. He is an astute capital markets ‘practitioner’ and will provide real ECM insights for Helix to engage with investors and shareholders as it maintains its focus on high-grade copper exploration in the Cobar region of New South Wales,” Helix Resources’ Managing Director Mike Rosenstreich said.
“We are a small Board and ‘Manny’ will contribute a unique perspective on corporate strategy and equity structuring and I am very excited that someone of his calibre has accepted our invitation to join.
“This appointment, is consistent with the board and management transition plan outlined in September and as of 1st November, marks the successful completion of stage one of the two-stage transition. I believe that we are now exceptionally well resourced to deliver strong exploration results with an enhanced corporate wrap into the future to generate value for our shareholders.”
