Mr. Ritchie earned a B.A. from Miami University (Ohio) in 1997 and an MBA in finance from Dalhousie University in 2000.

Mr. Ritchie spent just under three years in risk management at Marsh & McLennan and Liberty International before he moved into trading and institutional equity sales at UBS, Canaccord Financial, and National Bank Financial. Mr. Ritchie has developed extensive networks that enable him to support companies of differing sizes and across industries to cost-efficiently raise capital, develop communications strategies and create market awareness.

During the past eight years, Mr. Ritchie (through National Bank Financial and Canaccord Genuity) has been a key financial advisor and partner to the previous and current SilverCrest teams through the development of Santa Elena, the sale of the SilverCrest Mines to First Majestic Silver Corp. and the three financings for SilverCrest Metals. This relationship provides strong continuity as he transitions to his new role.

Chris is an avid sportsman holding national titles in tennis and was a member of the Canadian National Australian Rules Football team. He will be based in Toronto to help broaden SilverCrest Metals’ market presence but will balance his time in Vancouver and on the road as corporate needs dictate.
