PERTH ( – ASX-listed coal developer Pike River has appointed Peter Whittall as its CEO, following the resignation of Gordon Ward earlier this month.

Whittall will take over as CEO from October 2.

He has held the position of GM for mines since joining Pike River in 2005, and during that time, he has been responsible for the on-site construction, mine development and recruitment at the Greymouth operation, in New Zealand.

“Whittall brings nearly 30 years of experience as a coal miner and coal mining executive to his new role as Pike CEO,” said company chairperson John Dow.

“He has a practical understanding of our business and as a seasoned executive is well equipped to lead Pike River through the transition from mine development to steady-state mining operations.”
