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.

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
