K92 Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Ian Stalker, states, “Mark’s experience and relationships in capital markets, investment banking and mine finance will serve K92 well as we execute our business plan in Papua New Guinea. While his success and achievements in capital markets over the past 20 years are well known to many in this sector, not many people know that Mark lived in Papua New Guinea for a stretch of his life, and it is particularly rewarding that he is choosing to become involved in the country now through K92.”
