Board & Management

Vincent Algar

Chief Executive Officer

Mr Algar is a mining and resources geologist with over 33 years in the industry.  He brings to Tennant a strong track record of building shareholder value, most recently during his nine-year tenure as Managing Director of Australian Vanadium Ltd (ASX:AVL).  During that time, Mr Algar raised over $62 million in capital and built AVL’s market capitalisation to over $100 million.  Under Mr Algar’s leadership, AVL was able to advance a major vanadium project from the exploration and resource development stages through to project feasibility, attracting substantial Federal Government critical minerals funding. 

His experience and skillsets are ideally-suited to unlocking value from Tennant’s Bluebird high-grade copper-gold discovery in the Northern Territory, and taking the project through to the development stage.

Beyond his strong technical background, Mr Algar has extensive marketing and promotions experience and offers valuable strategic planning insights on both the technical and corporate side.
