The company has appointed Jonathan Richards as interim CFO following the resignation of Anthony Jackson, who left the role earlier this week.
Additionally, Andrew Male has accepted the position of COO of the company. Both appointments became effective on July 23, 2018.
Richards brings over a decade of resource-focused accounting, auditing and operational experience to his role as CFO. He previously worked as an officer and director with TSX and Venture-listed companies, as well as numerous private companies across the globe.
Male, who is based in London and reports as the COO to the Global UAV headquarters in Vancouver, is an experienced director and chief executive officer of international public and private investment, mining and oil and gas companies.
“We are pleased to welcome Mr. Richards as CFO and Male to his expanded role with the company. Both individuals bring extensive executive-level experience to the company. As we continue to rapidly expand our operations and technology development in the drone sector and its affiliated areas of opportunity, the ability to attract management with this pedigree is key to our future growth and success,” stated Michael Burns, Global UAV Technologies’ CEO and director.
The company thanked Jackson for his service as CFO and noted that he played an important role in the recent acquisitions and the company’s growth during the formative time of Global UAV. His efforts are greatly appreciated and acknowledged.
