The Colorado Mining Association (CMA) has selected Stan Dempsey Jr to be the next President and Chief Operating Officer of the association, effective 1 August 2016.
This follows CMA’s current President, Stuart Sanderson, retirement from the Association announcement in March, effective 30 September.
In accepting the position, Dempsey said: “I am tremendously excited to be selected as the new President of the Colorado Mining Association. I have big shoes to fill in succeeding Stuart Sanderson, a colleague I have long admired and respected during my time as President of the Colorado Petroleum Association.”
Dempsey will serve as President-elect for a two month transition period ending with Sanderson’s retirement on 30 September. Sanderson will continue to serve the Association and other clients in a consulting role after that date.
Sanderson commended the search committee for an “outstanding job in selecting a candidate with Stan’s qualifications. He is well positioned and well qualified to lead CMA forward in the years ahead,” he added.
Dempsey concluded: “I look forward to drawing upon my experience as an executive and as an advocate for responsible resource development to promote the benefits that mining brings to Colorado.”
