The National Mining Association (NMA) has elected Coeur Mining’s Mitchell Krebs as the chairman of its board of directors.
Krebs, who is Coeur’s president and CEO, was appointed this month after already serving on the board in a number of leadership positions including the executive committee, finance committee chair and the founding chair of NMA’s Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Task Force.
“We are extremely fortunate to have Mitch as chairman,” said NMA President and CEO Rich Nolan. “He is a transformational leader who has pushed us all to challenge the status quo and embrace what it means to be a contemporary, innovative industry, and he has worked personally to foster consensus among our member companies on key issues. He is the right leader at the right time – a time when the need for domestic mining of all types has never been greater.”
“I feel privileged to take on this role at such an exciting time for our industry,” said Krebs. “I look forward to working alongside my fellow board members and the NMA leadership to advance the issues that impact today’s modern mining industry.”
