American Battery Metals Corporation (OTCQB:ABML), an advanced extraction and battery recycling technology company, announced Monday that it has hired Vickey Alvarez as the company’s corporate controller.
She will have oversight and responsibility for full-cycle accounting for the corporation. In addition to all aspects of financials, forecasting, regulatory compliance, and all business transactions, she will also manage American Battery Metals’ sales and purchasing.
"I am excited to be joining the American Battery Metals Corporation team. It's a privilege to be a part of the work we are doing as a company to positively impact the battery industry and improve the recycling of waste," Alvarez said in a statement.
Alvarez comes to American Battery Metals from the Nevada State Board of Nursing (NSBN) where she managed budget, forecasts, cash management, audits, general ledger accounting, and payroll.
She re-engineered NSBN’s entire accounting system, creating greater efficiencies, budget savings, and transparent financial functions for the organization. On behalf of the organization, Vickey went to the governor-appointed Sunset Subcommittee of the Legislative Commission to present NSBN's financials and operating reserve policy which gained NSBN a satisfactory finding.
Prior to NSBN, she worked pre and post-IPO as a staff accountant for Coupa Software and was nstrumental in the audits leading up to their IPO.
Alvarez graduated from the University of Nevada, Reno, with a Bachelor of Science degree in business administration and a minor in accounting. She has recently returned to the University of Nevada to obtain her MBA.
American Battery Metals Corporation CEO Doug Cole commented: "We welcome Vickey to our team, as we prepare for the development of our lithium-ion battery recycling facility and target commercialization toward the end of 2020 and into early-2021."
The company is focused on its lithium-ion battery recycling and resource production projects in Nevada, with the goal of becoming a substantial domestic supplier of battery metals to the rapidly growing electric vehicle and battery storage markets.
