Welcome to Episode 9 of Finding the front. This episode we have a wonderful opportunity to chat with Mr Chris Reed who is the Managing Director and CEO of innovative minerals and advanced materials project development company Neometals.
Chris started in the mining industry in 1990 and co-founded Reed Resources with his father David in 2001. In this absorbing conversation we gain an understanding of Chris’s life growing up in the capital of the Western Australian goldfields, Kalgoorlie and how his career path and passion led to building a company in the mining sector, developing an understanding of the commodities that are very relevant to the 21st century and ultimately, the formation of Neometals.
