Andrew Webb has joined the Board of Dublin headquartered mining company Kenmare Resources as a Non-Executive Director ahead of his expected appointment as Chair.

He is expected to succeed Steven McTiernan after he steps down from the position of Chair following the Company's 2022 Annual General Meeting, having completed a nine-year term on the Board.

The company says he brings extensive natural resources and financial advisory experience to the Board.

Mr Webb was previously a Managing Director at Rothschild & Co. in the Global Advisory team, where he worked for 25 years until September 2018.

Steven McTiernan was appointed a Non-Executive Director of Kenmare Resources in March 2013 and as Chair in June 2014.

"It is an exciting time to be joining Kenmare and I am very much looking forward to working with the Board and the wider team," Andrew Webb, Chair designate of Kenmare said.

"I am delighted to have the opportunity to play a role in driving the future success of the business for all our stakeholders."
