Patrick Evans has resigned as CEO of Dominion Diamond Corp. after just over a year on the job.

He left the Canadian mining company on Dec. 5, Bloomberg reports. He had begun the role in November 2017.

Stepping into the position is Shane Durgin, who had been serving as chief operating officer.

Dominion was purchased by Montana-based Washington Cos. last year for $1.2 billion.

Evans was hired “to oversee and ensure a smooth transition following the acquisition of Dominion Diamond Mines by Washington,” said Larry Simkins, president of Washington Cos., in a memo to staff.

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
