About Alastair Neill

Alastair Neill is the President of Trinity Management, a consulting company specializing in business development activities in rare earths, specialty metals and startup of technology-based operations. He is currently leading business development activities for Rare Earth Salts, which is launching a novel process for the separation of rare earths and other potential metals. Opaque markets and international business relationships in Asia, North America, and Europe are areas where Alastair has over 20 years of experience. Alastair started doing business with China in 1995 as part of the management team of AMR Technologies (now Neo Performance Materials) that had two joint ventures in rare earth separation inside China. Initially, he led the North American sales for two years before taking over global sales responsibility including Japan, South Korea, and Europe. After two years he became VP/GM for the rare earth division including the responsibility of the two Chinese JV’s. Subsequently, Alastair moved to Beijing to negotiate a joint venture for a French company in Inner Mongolia, China. This was completed successfully but the global crisis of 2008 resulted in the project not proceeding. He then led a turnaround of an American joint venture in China. He evaluated a number of potential mining projects globally while a resident of Ulaanbaatar, the capital of Mongolia and wrote four marketing sections for project feasibility studies for projects in Brazil, Africa, Canada, and the USA. Alastair has been the director of a couple of TSX-V companies and has presented at a number of global conferences along with being an invitee to a town hall in Malaysia on rare earths. Alastair has a degree in Material Science Engineering from the University of Western Ontario, London, Ontario and an MBA from York University, Toronto.
