Julian Hanna has announced his retirement from the board of nickel miner Western Areas, after serving as its inaugural managing director for over a decade and then taking on a non-executive role.
Mr Hanna will leave his position as a director and step down from the company next Wednesday.
“Julian was one of the key early architects in setting up the Western Areas business for the success it now enjoys and has been a passionate contributor as a non-executive director since stepping down as managing director,” Mr Macliver said.
His position will not be filled, with the company’s board to comprise of six directors when Mr Hanna leaves next week.
Western Areas shares were unchanged at $2.29 each at the close of trade.
