MICROMINE has established an Advisory Board comprising John McGagh and Mitchell Hooke AM, both recognised for their exceptional contribution to the global mining sector. This body will provide MICROMINE’s Board of Directors and management with unparalleled insight to assist the development of the company’s projects, business and future opportunities.
“We are honoured Mitch and John accepted our invitation to join our Advisory Board,” said MICROMINE’s recently appointed CEO and director Claire Tuder. “Their enthusiasm, passion, knowledge and experience are invaluable and will stimulate our thinking and planning for the future.”
Mitch Hooke is chairman of Partners in Performance International, a global management consulting firm for mineral resources, agricultural, industrial manufacturing and services industries, and is also a non-executive director of ASX-listed and non-listed public companies, and was formerly a director of a USA based private equity company in the global resources services sector.
He is globally recognised for his in-depth knowledge and strategic leadership in both Australian and global public policy advocacy, and commercial operational practices, spanning over 30 years as a national and international industry leader across the agricultural, food and grocery, and mining industries.
“This initiative is indicative of MICROMINE’s systematic thirst for knowledge in their globally acclaimed innovative design and application of software solutions in expediting the discovery and transformation of natural resources endowment into societal wealth,” said Mitch Hooke.
John McGagh is recognised for driving business change and growth - particularly in the areas of applied industrial technology and innovation, and the application of digital business solutions. He serves as chief digital officer for Snowy Hydro, an integrated energy company spanning renewable energy generation.
Prior to this, John McGagh was head of innovation at Rio Tinto and implemented a range of break-through technologies including the flagship ‘Mine of the Future’ program, autonomous vehicles, advanced remote sensing, real time connection of industrial operations to remote excellence centres, advanced real time data modelling and ‘big data’ solutions spanning operations and maintenance.
In September MICROMINE announced the appointment of Claire Tuder as CEO and executive director. She was previously general manager and strategic marketing manager.
Claire Tuder has a history in international marketing and business development, most recently as the director of sales at the West Australian Government’s Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority.
