IAMGOLD Corporation (IMG) has added Dr. Ann K. Masse as its newest director as it continues to strengthen its leadership team.

“We have continued with our board renewal in accordance with our guidelines announced at the beginning of 2021,” said board chair Don Charter.

In September, the company announced the appointment of Kevin O’Kane, a mining engineer with almost 40 years of experience, to the board.

Mr. O’Kane joined Anne Marie Toutant and Deborah Starkman, who were appointed in December 2020, as the newest board members.

Dr. Masse is the newest addition to the team of nine board members. She is a proven leader in safety, health, and environmental stewardship and currently serves as the global head of health, safety, environment, and security at Rio Tinto.

At Rio Tinto, Dr. Masse is responsible for over 140 professionals around the world. Under her leadership, Rio Tinto has experienced no fatalities in the last three years.

Dr. Masse holds a Ph.D. in Physical Oceanography from the University of Delaware and completed her post-doctoral appointment with the Canada Centre for Inland Waters in Burlington, Ontario. She also holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Environmental Studies from St. Michael’s College.

“[Dr. Masse’s] extensive business experience and her expertise and depth in health and safety, environment and security matters, gained from her experience with global mining and specialty products leaders will provide insightful and meaningful guidance and governance over these critical areas,” said Mr. Charter.

Last week, IAMGOLD committed to reducing its emissions to as close to zero as possible by no later than 2050. Dr. Masse, with her background in environmental stewardship, will be an asset to the company as it works to achieve this goal.

IAMGOLD is a mid-tier gold mining company operating in North America, South America and West Africa.

The company’s operating mines include Essakane in Burkina Faso, Rosebel in Suriname, and Westwood in Canada.

IAMGOLD Corporation (IMG) is up 2.98 per cent, trading at $2.935 per share as of 12:15 pm ET.
