Knight Piésold Ghana Appoints Jeffrey Coffin as New Regional Manager

September 12, 2016, Accra, Ghana – Knight Piésold announces the appointment of Jeffrey Coffin as the new Regional Manager of Knight Piésold Ghana, effective January 1, 2017. He will succeed Regional Manager Trent Collins, who will complete his three-year commitment to manage the company, focusing on driving the company’s next phase of growth in Ghana and neighboring West African countries.

A Senior Engineer based in the Denver office, Jeffrey is a registered professional engineer with 10 years of consulting experience in civil and geotechnical engineering. He has a doctorate degree in civil engineering from the University of Colorado, a major “Research One” university. He specializes in the characterization and modeling of the consolidation of soft soils, such as mine tailings, which undergo considerable strain during the consolidation process. He has worked on geotechnical analysis and design for tailings facilities, heap leach facilities, and waste rock facilities for mining projects in North and South America and Africa.

“We are very excited for Jeffrey to head the Ghanaian company, which will greatly benefit from his technical expertise and experience,” said André Nieuwenhuizen, Chairman and Chief Financial Officer of the Knight Piésold Group. “Jeffrey joined Knight Piésold in 2007 and has proven strong leadership qualities that will further solidify Knight Piésold’s position as a recognized leader and specialist in mine tailings management within the country.”

With an office in Accra, Knight Piésold Ghana is celebrating its 20th year of operations. It has grown into a recognized consultancy, with over 40 engineers, environmental scientists, and soils laboratory technicians supporting a significant number of mining companies in Ghana and neighboring countries. It began its Schools Initiative Program four years ago and has been hosting various activities annually to educate high school students on practical engineering applications.
