Irvine will take over from Vincent Benoit, who is departing to re-join the La Mancha Group, Endeavour’s main shareholder, with effect from August 1 this year.
Immediately before joining Endeavour, Irvine was executive head of strategy and business development for Base Metals at Anglo American Plc.
"We are delighted to welcome Louis to Endeavour. His strong financial track record with leading international mining companies will be of significant benefit to Endeavour as we continue to grow," said Sébastien de Montessus, CEO of Endeavour Mining.
"On behalf of the board and the management team, I would like to thank Vincent for his contribution to Endeavour’s value creation since 2016. He has played a key role in building and executing our strategy by increasing the quality of our portfolio through divestments and acquisitions, and in reshaping our balance sheet to fund our growth. I wish him success in his new role at La Mancha.”
