Fabergé Sean Gilbertson

Profile of Fabergé's CEO.

Sean Gilbertson graduated as a mining engineer from Wits University in South Africa having spent time in the country’s deep-level gold and platinum mines.

He worked as project financier for Deutsche Bank in Frankfurt and London specialising in independent power projects and public/private partnerships.

In 1998, he co-founded globalCOAL, a company that played a central role in the commoditisation of the thermal coal industry, and was appointed CEO in 2001 when the business was acquired by industry players including Anglo American plc, BHP-Billiton plc, Glencore International AG and Rio Tinto plc. He was also co-founder of the pioneering Spectron eMetals trading platform for category I and II members of the London Metals Exchange.

Sean is a founding partner of the Pallinghurst Group, an Executive Director of Gemfields plc, and a Director and Chief Executive of Fabergé Limited.

An avid cyclist, Sean also has a passion for gemstones and the great outdoors. Always up for an adventure, he once slept in a light aircraft on a village road in Mozambique whilst looking for gemstone mines.
