Barrick Gold Corp. announced that Executive Vice Chairman, Greg Wilkins, recently passed away. Wilkins served as president and CEO from 2003 to March 2008. He had been a member of the company’s board of directors since 1991. Over the course of his career, he held a succession of increasingly senior roles, including CFO in the early 1990s. He took the lead in executing Barrick’s acquisition of Placer Dome Inc., a bold move that vaulted Barrick to its industry position today as the world’s leading gold miner and one of Canada’s most prominent companies.
