President and Chief Executive Officer, Barrick Gold Corporation
Mark Bristow is the president and chief executive of Barrick Gold Corporation (NYSE:GOLD) (TSX:ABX). Formerly, he was chief executive of Randgold Resources, the company he built from a small Africa-focused exploration business into one of the industry’s most profitable and best managed gold miners.
In January 2019, the two companies merged. Bristow restructured and restrategised Barrick, and within months he was the prime mover in the combination of the Nevada assets of Barrick and Newmont, creating the world’s single largest gold mining complex, Nevada Gold Mines, majority-owned and operated by Barrick.
Bristow leads an organisation with mines and projects in 18 countries, focused on long-life, high-margin gold and copper assets and containing six of the world’s Tier One gold mines.
