Rob McEwen
Rob McEwen is Chairman and CEO of Goldcorp Inc., North America’s most profitable gold mining company in 2001, on a per share basis. Goldcorp is listed on the Toronto and New York Stock Exchanges. His career began in the investment industry, then in 1990 he jumped into the mining industry. Since that time he has driven the transformation of Goldcorp from a holding company into a dynamic, profitable gold mining company. Since 1993, when Rob started restructuring Goldcorp, its market capitalization has grown from Cdn$60 million (US$50 million) to Cdn$3.03 billion (US$2.03 billion) and Goldcorp’s share price has increased at a 41% (US 38%) compound annual growth rate.

Rob has a 7% interest in Goldcorp and he is the largest individual shareholder.

He has been a successful “white knight” in two hostile takeover battles, done extensive corporate restructuring, endured a 46-month labour strike which concluded with the mine becoming union free, financed the discovery of one of the world’s richest gold deposits and launched the first ever on-line Internet gold rush, “The Goldcorp Challenge”.
