Sokalsky has guided Barrick through a difficult period since replacing Aaron Regent two years ago and working to cut costs and improve the company balance sheet.
TORONTO Nike Air Max 2015 Dark Obsidian/Blue Lagoon Barrick Gold Corp. (TSX:ABX) announced the departure of president and CEO Jamie Sokalsky on Wednesday in a management shakeup that increases the influence of chairman John Thornton.
Sokalsky said Wednesday that it was time for the next phase of the company development.
The company has also sold what it deemed non core operations in recent months and worked to reduce its debt with a near $3 billion stock offering late last year that was used to repay debt.
However, under his watch, Barrick share price has been cut in half and the company has taken billions in impairment charges as the price of gold has fallen.
The changes will take effect on Sept. 15, with Sokalsky helping with the transition process.

Barrick also announced Wednesday the appointment of senior vice president of human resources Darian Rich to the newly created role of executive vice president of talent management, intended to retain and develop future employees.

Munk pointed to Thornton deep connections with China as a key asset for the company as it looks to grow.
Other changes announced Wednesday included appointing chief financial officer Ammar Al Joundi to the additional role of senior executive vice president to work on the company strategic initiatives.
believe our new management structure will allow Barrick to address successfully the key challenges facing the mining industry today and, in turn, will position the company to deliver superior returns to its shareholders in the future, he said in a statement.
