Energizer Resources Inc. (TSX:EGZ) (OTCQB:ENZR) (WKN: A1CXW3)  (“Energizer” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that Marc Johnson, CFA, has been named Chief Financial Officer of the Company effective immediately.


Mr. Johnson brings over 9 years of management experience, having held senior executive positions at large public companies in corporate development, financial management and cost control. He also brings 10 years of capital markets experience, specifically in mining investment banking and as an equity research mining analyst, covering base and precious metals.  He is a Principal at Quantum Advisory Partners LLP., a professional services firm that provides CFO services to public and private companies and is also the CFO of two gold exploration companies.

Mr. Johnson is a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA), holds a Bachelor of Commerce (Finance) from the John Molson School of Business at Concordia University in Montreal and is bilingual. He will be completing the Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) designation in 2016.

“Throughout the development of our Molo project, Energizer has continually strengthened the management team, and the release of the Molo full feasibility study this past February marked the beginning of Energizer’s transition from an exploration company to that of a mine developer”, said Craig Scherba, President and CEO of Energizer. “As such, I welcome Marc to the Company and look forward to leveraging his extensive financial and mining industry experience to enhance the day-to-day operations and financial controls of the Company and the Molo project.  He will be a considerable asset as we advance towards final negotiations regarding project financing and off-take arrangements.”

Mr. Johnson replaces Peter Liabotis, who served as the Company’s Chief Financial Officer since September 2012.
