TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mountain Valley MD Holdings Inc. (the “Company” or “MVMD”) (CSE: MVMD) (OTCQB: MVMDF) (FRA: 20MP) is pleased to announce the appointment of Lucie Letellier to the role of Chief Financial Officer effective September 11, 2023. Ms. Letellier succeeds Aaron Triplett, who previously served as Chief Financial Officer and will remain as a non-executive consultant of the Company through November 30, 2023 in order to ensure a seamless transition.
“I am very pleased to welcome Lucie Letellier to this important role and look forward to capitalizing on her leadership and expertise to support MVMD’s commercialization growth phase and the scaling of our operations,” said Dennis Hancock, President & CEO of the Company. “Ms. Letellier’s proven track record of results-driven leadership, strategic thinking and financial acumen comes at an important time for MVMD as we navigate complex international sales, royalty, and tax strategies.”
With a distinguished financial career spanning more-than 25 years, Ms. Letellier brings a wealth of expertise in public markets and international business. Ms. Letellier originally served as the CFO of Mountain Valley MD Inc. (MVMD’s wholly owned subsidiary), where she skillfully navigated a complex Reverse Takeover (RTO) transaction in February 2020 and led multiple financing rounds in the establishment of the business. Ms. Letellier transitioned into an advisory role with the Company in May of 2020 as she took a leave of absence from full-time responsibilities to prioritize family commitments. Her extensive financial expertise has been showcased in numerous roles over her career, including CFO of Paramount Gold and Silver Corp. (NYSE/TSX: PZG). At Paramount Gold, she supported the company's growth, overseeing $30 million in equity financing, which ultimately led to its acquisition by Coeur Mining (NYS: CDE) for $200 million. Lucie's extensive experience includes key financial leadership positions in various multinational corporations across numerous stock exchanges, including CFO roles at Crestwell Resources (CSE: CER), Everton Resources Inc. (EVR: TSX-V), and Albert Mining Inc. (MJX: TSX-V).
“Ms. Letellier brings a deep understanding of financial reporting for both US and Canadian public companies, tax compliance, corporate governance, and continuous disclosure requirements,” continued Mr. Hancock. “Ms. Letellier’s ability to navigate diverse regulatory environments, manage currency fluctuations, and adapt to cultural nuances across international markets will be invaluable on our leadership team.”
The Company has granted stock options (the “Options”) to Ms. Letellier, in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Company’s Stock Option Plan, to purchase 500,000 common shares in the capital stock of the Company. The Options are exercisable for a period of five years from the date of grant at a price of $0.05 per share. The Options will vest 20% on the date of grant, 30% on the 6-month anniversary following the date of grant and the remaining 50% on the 12-month anniversary following the date of grant.
The Company extends its appreciation to outgoing CFO Aaron Triplett for his extensive contributions to the Company’s development and providing financial leadership in a challenging start-up environment and wishes him well in his new endeavours.
