TORONTO, June 24, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dundee Corporation (TSX: DC.A) (“Dundee” or the “Corporation”) is pleased to announce that at its Annual General Meeting of shareholders (“AGM”) held earlier today, the Corporation’s nominees were overwhelmingly re-elected, and PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP was reappointed as Auditor.

At a meeting held immediately after the AGM, the Board unanimously reappointed Peter Nixon as Chair, and, on the recommendation of Jonathan Goodman, Dundee’s President and CEO, appointed Steven Sharpe as Executive Vice Chair, effective Friday, June 25, 2021.  

Mr. Sharpe’s mandate is to rationalize Dundee’s portfolio of legacy investments and operating subsidiary companies.

Jonathan Goodman commented:

“We welcome Steven to our leadership team in his new role of Executive Vice Chair. We believe that with his skillset, expertise, and senior leadership experience, Steven is perfectly suited to execute on one of our key strategic objectives, namely, rationalizing our portfolio of legacy assets. With him leading this initiative, Dundee’s efforts in this regard will clearly accelerate, and we can sharpen our focus on building Dundee 2.0 as an active investor in the mining sector.”

Steven Sharpe’s extensive senior leadership and public company experience spans a wide range of industries and responsibilities, from legal practice to corporate strategy and restructuring to investment banking to C-suite leadership. He is currently Chair of The Privacy Co LLC, and a director of Crown Capital Partners Inc. and Source Energy Services Ltd. Most recently, Mr. Sharpe was Chair and Interim CEO of Madalena Energy Inc. as well as Chair of Corporate Risk Holdings, LLC. Previously, he was Chair and Interim CEO of Longview Oil Corp., CEO and director of C.A. Bancorp Inc., Chair of Advantage Oil & Gas Ltd., and Chair of Prime Restaurants Inc.
