Goldplat says Matthew Robinson will be proposed as a director at the annual general meeting on 27 October and, subject to the approval of shareholders, he will succeed Brian Moritz as non-executive chairman.
Goldplat says Robinson is a high profile figure in the growth company arena, with more than 12 years' experience in mining and resources.
Robinson spent the last 15 years of his career as a corporate finance director at finnCap and Panmure Gordon/Durlacher.
During this time he was responsible for establishing finnCap and Panmure Gordon's mining and resources investment businesses, in addition to his role as adviser to AIM and Official List companies on the London Stock Exchange.
Moving to the nascent finnCap in 2006, Robinson was instrumental in its rapid growth which saw it become the largest nominated adviser and broking firm, by number of clients, on the London Stock Exchange's AIM market.
