Marathon Gold Corp. said Aug. 1 that it has appointed Matthew Manson as the company's new president, CEO and director, effective Aug. 19.
Before joining Marathon, Manson served as CEO of Stornoway Diamond Corp..
Manson replaces Phillip Walford, the company's founder who served as president and CEO since 2010. Walford will continue to serve as director of the board to provide support to the company's Valentine Gold Camp in Newfoundland and Labrador.
The company began its search for Walford's successor last April.
