Arizona Silver Exploration Inc (CVE:AZS, OTCQB: AZASF) says it has hired financial executive and commercial pilot David Vincent as a director.
Vincent is a professional engineer and commercial pilot with post graduate qualifications in management and financial services, the company said.
He was a senior executive with BAE Systems plc (LON:BA), the global aerospace company, where he gained significant skills and experience in international business development, feasibility studies, market analysis, business planning, project financing, project management and marketing within the UK, the Middle East and Europe, Arizona added.
"His skills and knowledge of market cycles, financial background along with global knowledge, and industry leading ideas make Mr. Vincent a strong and welcome asset to the Arizona Silver board," said Mike Stark, chairman of the board.
Earlier this month, the firm revealed its shares had started trading on the OTCQB(R) venture market in the US.
The market is for early-stage and developing US and international companies that are not yet able to qualify for OTCQX, it said.
Greg Hahn, the president and chief executive, said: "This allows our US shareholders and others in the US who desire to be shareholders easier access to a market for buying and selling shares in the company.
"We look forward to increasing our US shareholder base through trading on the OTCQB"
And in January, the group revealed the drillbits are set to start turning again soon at its Ramsey silver project in Arizona.
