Meet our new board

As we steer Levin Sources into its second decade and the post-pandemic world, I am excited to introduce a new board of highly experienced non-executive directors (NED) and I am grateful to the exiting members of our very first board for their advice and insights.

When Karen Leigh Anderson, Vik Anderson, Lester Kemp, David Craig Ovadia and Jane Stevensen joined our board, they had no idea they were also signing up to support us in navigating a global pandemic that transformed the international development, and mining and minerals sectors. During their term, they advised us on complex strategic decisions and helped us future-proof the company in an uncertain environment. Their generous guidance and sharp wisdom over the past couple of years have helped us become the Levin Sources we are today.

Managing Director Holger Grundel and I are now joined on our second board by chair Edward Bickham, Paul Ferrett, Dr Bola Grace and Anne-Claire Howard.

Scroll down to find out more about their experience but before that, I wanted to leave the floor to former NED David Ovadia and Jane Stevensen one last time as they look back on their own time with Levin Sources.

Estelle Levin-Nally,

CEO and Founder

Meet the New Board

“Becoming a Non-Executive Director of Levin Sources was particularly rewarding as I originally met Estelle Levin-Nally not long after the business was first established. Clearly on a positive growth trajectory with a very talented team it was a great time to join the Board.

The extraordinary issues then thrown up by the COVID-19 pandemic created unique challenges of a completely different nature and I am proud of having been able to support and help steer Levin Sources through such difficult and uncharted territory, admire the resilience and sheer guts of the leadership team.

I wish the new Board well as Levin Sources continues to grow and succeed.”

Jane Stevensen

“It has been a pleasure and an honour to serve as a non-executive director on the board of Levin Sources.

The company has successfully navigated the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic and has emerged stronger and more strategically placed to become a global leader in advising on responsible and ethical practices in the extractives sectors – a matter of growing importance to industry, society, governments and investors alike.

I wish Levin Sources every success for the future and I know it will be a force for good in the coming decades.”
