Peter’s 13-year tenure as Managing Director, Australia, of Resource Capital Funds (RCF) (18-years total tenure), provided Peter with extensive experience in these areas. Before joining Appian, Peter served as Managing Director for Ora Banda Mining Ltd, a publicly listed gold producer.
Prior to joining RCF in 2003, Peter gained valuable technical experience in mining production, planning and management while working as the Underground Manager at the Emily Ann Nickel Mine for LionOre Australia (Nickel) Limited and with WMC Resources Limited.

Senior Advisors are not full-time employees of Appian and the terms of their engagement as Senior Advisors permit them to, and it is expected they will, have other industry roles and businesses. To the extent an Appian-advised investment vehicle or a portfolio company engages a Senior Advisor (or a company with which such Senior Advisor is affiliated with or employed by) for services, the relevant vehicle will bear the fees and costs of such services. No Appian-advised investment vehicle will bear the costs for the provision of services within a Senior Advisor’s stated responsibilities to Appian.
