A senior executive with over 29 years of diversified experience in the mining industry – 14 years working with mining contractors and 15 years working with mining companies in executive roles.
I started out working underground as a miner as I felt it was important that I understood what these people had to deal with on a daily basis so that I could perform better in a leadership role later in my career. This willingness to “get dirty” allowed me to earn the respect of my peers early on in my career.
I have a solid reputation in the mining community as I firmly believe in carrying out my business in a professional and ethical manner with honesty, integrity and passion.
Safety is of paramount importance to me and I am firm believer that the most productive work places are also the safest workplaces. My commitment to providing a safe work environment for my team is steadfast.
It takes a high performance team working together in order to deliver exceptional results. I take pride in the teams that I have been able to assemble in each of the various leadership positions I have held over the years. I understand team dynamics and people management. I believe that a healthy team is imperative for success and is an indication of great leadership.
I have an extremely diverse mining background in both hard rock (base and precious metals) and soft rock (potash and salt) mines. I have transitioned companies from exploration into development and from development into production. My Projects background is extensive. When it comes to building and operating mines, there is not much that I have not done. I understand what it takes to operate mines and deliver projects safely, on time and on budget. I consider myself a turnaround specialist as I have done this successfully several times in my career. I take pride in the work I have done rescuing operations and bringing stability, longevity and profitability to the operations.
As a senior mining executive, I embrace the opportunity to help companies and teams become high performers and I am always looking for opportunities where I can add value to organizations.
