“We are pleased to welcome Claudia and Anca to Standard Lithium’s board of directors during such an important stage of growth for the company,” said Robert Cross, chairman of the board. “Both are accomplished senior executives who bring decades of experience in the energy sector. Claudia’s technical and financial acumen and human resources expertise, coupled with Anca’s experience in project development and focus on safety and environmental excellence, will be of great value to Standard Lithium as we continue to progress towards commercialization.”
