As an experienced Operations Manager and professional Project Manager with over 30 years’ experience in the mining and metals industry, I have enjoyed working across the breadth of project phases. I have been fully immersed in the design, manufacture, construction, contracting and project management of medium to large materials handling projects for the coal, gold, copper, sugar, quarrying and recycling industries. Having progressed through a range of project and business roles, from engineering designer, design manager, senior project manager, general manager and operations manager, I place the utmost importance on leading a safety culture, cultivating workplace diversity, and promoting high levels of collaboration across the disciplines and functional streams.
Complimenting my project and business experience, I have also been engaged by Queensland University of Technology (QUT) as an industry specialist Sessional Academic, delivering post graduate project management courses for over 20 years.
