Regional Chapters – Spotlight on European Chapter

We are delighted with the progress we have made in setting up the regional chapters. Yana Stunis who chairs the European Chapter has set up her committee and they have already hosted their first event. Despite the fact that they were unable to host it as an in-person event due to the pandemic, they resolutely proceeded and we were delighted with the level of engagement and participation we received. Yana is superbly assisted by Anna Marchisio and Lynda Si-Ahmed.

Anna holds a degree in humanities and German Studies which unexpectedly led her to the PGM sector, after many years in the automotive satellite car and OEM industries. In 2014 she moved from Italy to Germany to join Hensel Recycling as business development manager. Anna is a passionate promiscuous reader, practices yoga and loves cooking. She advocates women and gender gap issues and despite her chronological age remains a convinced idealist who believes in the power of intelligence and kindness.

Lynda is the Refining Group Business Development Manager at Metalor Technolgies SA, based in Switzerland and have worked 17 years in the precious metals industry and 5 years into the base metal industry. With a Ph. D in chemistry and an executive MBA form HEC Lausanne, she held different positions into Metalor and has spent more of her career leading precious metal R&D projects,  managing strategic projects and actively working into new businesses development, implementation &  management including sales and marketing of PGM industrial products.In parallel of a passionate working life, I love cooking, enjoy hiking and pilates and spend time with my two sons and husband.
