Coeur Mining’s Mitch Krebs named Chairman of the NMA Board
In September 2022, Mitchell J. Krebs was elected to lead the National Mining Association (NMA) Board of Directors as Chairman of the Board. Krebs is President, Chief Executive Officer and member of the board of Coeur Mining Inc., a U.S.-based, well-diversified, growing precious metals producer.
“We are extremely fortunate to have Mitch as chairman,” said Rich Nolan, NMA President and CEO. “He is a transformational leader who has pushed us all to challenge the status quo and embrace what it means to be a contemporary, innovative industry, and he has worked personally to foster consensus among our member companies on key issues. He is the right leader at the right time – a time when the need for domestic mining of all types has never been greater.”
“I feel privileged to take on this role at such an exciting time for our industry,” said Krebs. “I look forward to working alongside my fellow Board members and the NMA leadership to advance the issues that impact today’s modern mining industry.”
In his time on the Board of Directors of the NMA, Krebs has served in a number of leadership positions, including serving on the executive committee, chairing the finance committee and serving as the founding chair of the association’s Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Task Force.
Krebs has worked at Coeur Mining since 1995 when he joined the company as its manager of acquisitions. He holds a Bachelor of Science in economics from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and a Master of Business Administration from Harvard University.
