BacTech Environmental Corp. has hired David Tingey as chief operating officer. He will oversee operations development and management across the company, setting and driving strategic recommendations that support immediate shareholder interests in its Ponce Enriquez, Ecuador bioleaching project and its evolving South American growth strategy.
The strategic addition of Tingey comes on the heels of the company announcing robust and economically compelling results of its third-party produced Bankable Feasibility Study for the staged development of its 100% owner-operated bioleaching facility in Ponce Enriquez.
Tingey is an experienced manager and sustainability professional who has developed and built on-site capabilities across global operations for organizations including Rio Tinto and New Pacific Metals. He has a track record of delivering and capitalizing on positive change at site operational levels, all complemented by sustainability best practices and extensive construction expertise.
“David is intimately familiar with EPCMC’s Feasibility Study findings, and all engineering and development considerations, including the proposed environmental setting, project infrastructure and process economics expectations,” said Ross Orr, president and CEO of BacTech.
“Throughout his career, David has built diversified expertise in sustainable strategy, project management and development, ESG (environmental, social and governance) initiatives and stakeholder communications and engagement. He’s the type of informed executive that I want driving execution, as he’s equally as comfortable operating in the boardroom as he is breaking new ground on-site. I’m glad this pursuit paid off.”
