He will be responsible for growing the organisation’s portfolio of commercial partnerships, and enhancing its market leadership in gold ETFs and other physical gold products across the world.

World Gold Council chief executive Aram Shishmanian says: "Kevin joins us with a clear directive to enhance gold’s stature and role within the global financial markets. His experience in developing commercial partnerships and marketing financial products, coupled with his knowledge of the dynamic role that gold plays as a unique asset, will be a major asset to the organisation."
