Andrew started with Venture in 2006 and has been integral to the acquisition and development of the company’s portfolio of projects.

This culminated in the landmark discovery of the Jupiter Rare Earths Project in Western Australia.

During his 17-year tenure, Andrew helped navigate the business through difficult economic periods including the global financial crisis and Covid 19.

Venture Non-Executive Chair Tim Lindley said: “We are excited to be appointing Philippa Leggat as Managing Director at this is pivotal time for the company, where there is a clear opportunity to significantly advance the Jupiter Rare Earths Project, restructuring the company to best position VMS for opportunities in critical minerals, and create substantial shareholder value.

“We have a vision to make Venture one of the best rare earths and critical minerals companies in Australia. Philippa’s appointment is the next key step in that journey.”

Lindley said the company acknowledges Andrew’s 17 years of service as Technical Director and Managing Director.
