Having overseen many ”change management” programs that have delivered significant shifts in safety, performance and behaviours, Pat works closely with clients to cement the project culture and working relationship from day one. Pat draws on lessons learned and experience on project steering groups and relationship teams to ensure that contractor and client organisations are culturally aligned.
He also brings his strong mining-industry network garnered during his time in executive roles where he was responsible for project construction and commissioning, statutory mine management; commercial; OHS&E; management of contracts and operations; sales and marketing; and reporting to a joint-venture management committee and board.
An experienced General Manager Operations, Peter has been responsible for the safety and operational performance of a portfolio of open cut coal mining contracts within Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and New Zealand with a workforce of approximately 2000 employees. A commercially astute operations manager, with experience in thin seam and selective mining practices, Peter has a track record of delivering project performance improvements.
He has been Coal Mine Operator’s representative and has been responsible for large scale mobilisations, including transitioning operations from one SHMS to a new operator. Peter has held director roles in incorporated and unincorporated Joint Venture/Alliance style contracts with a particular emphasis on working closely with clients to deliver best for project outcomes. Much of his career has been spent in the minerals and metals industry of Western Australia where he holds a statutory unrestricted quarry manager’s certificate of competency. Peter is astutely aware of the project cost drivers and has delivered successful client focussed outcomes under both hard dollar and collaborative relationship-based contracts.
Greg is an extremely hands-on GM of Mining Operations and is personally responsible for ensuring projects are resourced with the right plant and people to minimise mine gate costs and provide low-cost solutions that attract and retain the high-performing workforce to meet and sustain production.
Throughout his career, Greg has mobilised large workforces quickly including more than 1000 people on a $2.5b iron ore mining services project and most recently he mobilised and onboarded 350 personnel and $200m of heavy mining fleet on a coal project.
He brings specific knowledge of the central Queensland coal basin profile, geology and geometry from his Bowen Basin experience – as GM of Technical Services for several majors. Most recently Jamey successfully completed a greenfield mobilisation - including recruiting more than 350 personnel and mobilising 54 items of large mining plant in six-months and. The mobilisation was injury free (30,000 personnel hours).
Jackson works tirelessly during contract negotiations to build rigour and discipline into the project establishment – allocating the right risk to the right entity. Jackson repeatedly demonstrates the value of getting the contract set up right the first time with clear accountability – an essential ingredient to ensure client satisfaction. He has robust conversations internally and with HSE Mining clients upfront to thoroughly identify, plan for and engineer out the risks so that clients experience smooth ongoing management of the contract.
He works collaboratively with clients to define clear and unambiguous contracts to meet the project objectives to give clients what they want – commodities mined cleanly and delivered consistently every month to meet the production targets.
Tony ensures safety is always front and centre. His safety-first lens has been honed throughout his career. Tony has worked closely with the HSE function during senior executive roles in-house at Glencore Xstrata where he was GM of Human Resources and Group General Manager of HR for a global logistics company. There he was also responsible for aligning the HR and HSE business plans of the logistics services to the mining, energy and government sectors in Australia and Asia.
Tony understands in a competitive and tightening market how to find the optimum balance between attracting the right resources, building a sustainable and safe onsite culture that is performance focused, paying people fairly and minimising gate costs to deliver assets at the lowest cost per tonne. He expertly navigates these HR challenges to ensure best for project solutions.
For each of HSE’s projects, Rob is responsible for providing reliable fleet to achieve production requirements at the optimum price for our clients.
Rob understands how to budget and manage mining fleet performance over the lifecycle of the asset, having worked for contractors as well as mine-owners.
Our focus has always been ‘extracting value not just minerals and metals’. This means we are acutely aware of the role we play in providing long-term benefits, not just for our people and our clients but in the communities in which we operate – be that as catalysts for regional prosperity, employment, partnerships or local participation to deliver long-term value. When the communities in which we operate prosper, so does our business.
We are committed to the sustainable development of our business and we take a long-term view in relationships with our people, our partners, our customers, and our communities to find new ways to reduce the resources we use.
We work with clients whose overarching approach to local communities is always genuine engagement.
