OUR PEOPLE

Kitco Gibson Capital Corp. and Beneath The Surface Capital Corp. are driven by the experience, expertise, entrepreneurship and insights of accomplished business leaders whose track records speak volumes of the company they run.

Scott Gibson, Managing Director

Scott Gibson is the founder of Scott F. Gibson & Company Inc., SG Capital Corp. and Beneath The Surface Capital Corp. A University of British Columbia graduate, Gibson has achieved distinction as a financial entrepreneur whose primary expertise is in mining. Gibson has repeatedly proven successful at helping early-stage undervalued companies reach their full potential. Through his network in the financial community, he has access to early-stage financings.

In 1999, Gibson saw opportunity in the coming together of two historic market forces — the falling price of gold and the surging demand for the metal. Realizing that the time would soon be ripe to invest in micro- and small-cap mine development and exploration companies, Gibson set about acquiring a wealth of knowledge and contacts through his job at one of Canada’s leading finance houses. By 2001, he had established his first company. Today, just under a decade later, Gibson and his companies have helped scores of early-stage exploration and mine development companies attract the capital required to move forward.


Bart Kitner, Director

Bart Kitner is the President and Founder of Kitco Metals Inc. Kitco specializes in all aspects of the sale and processing of physical precious metals and related investments. Kitco.com is the world's leading online venue for precious metal quotes, charts, news, and commentaries.

Bart got his start in the precious metals business, buying and selling scrap gold, silver and platinum from jewelers, dentists and other fabricators in his native Montreal. He founded Kitco in 1977 while attending Montreal's McGill University where he completed a Business degree with a major in Finance. Upon graduating, Bart made precious metals his full-time career.

In 1995, when Kitner launched the website Kitco.com long before the Internet became ubiquitous, he established an online presence for his company. Privileged market information — prices, trends, news — that had once been jealously guarded to protect the knowledge advantage of a few big players was given away to everyone. In short order, Kitco.com became the world’s favorite and most trusted source of precious metals market information. Combined with online purchase and sale facilities for many investment and industrial products, the website now attracts over a million unique visits every day.
