Haver & Boecker Niagara has appointed Ananda Mukherjee as the organization’s head of the Mineral Processing Business in India. Mukherjee, currently residing in Kolkata, India, brings 30 years of experience to the role. His background will help grow Haver & Boecker Niagara’s presence in India, working closely with new and existing customers to provide the equipment and services they need to maximise production within their mining and aggregates operations.
“I am excited to build a dedicated team of individuals to serve customers and share with them the legacy of Haver & Boecker Niagara’s world-class mineral processing technology, products and solutions,” Mukherjee said. “It’s important to me that my team understands not only our business but the individual customer’s business as well. We want to ensure that each operation is equipped with the products and support best suited to their applicational requirements.”
Mukherjee’s career in mining evolved from sales engineer into branch sales manager and, most recently, technical sales manager for a global processing equipment company.
In addition to experience, his education is another factor that qualifies Mukherjee to lead India’s mineral processing business for Haver & Boecker Niagara. He earned his bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from Jadavpur University and followed that with post-graduate work to complete a diploma in business management (MBA equivalent) from the Indian Institute of Social Welfare and Business Management (IISWBM), Kolkata. Most recently, Mukherjee attended an Executive Program from 2018-2019 in Leadership and Management from the Indian Institute of Management in Kolkata.
“At Haver & Boecker Niagara, we strive to work closely with our customers to look at the big picture and help them maximize the performance of their operation through strategic equipment selection,” said Clayton Carvalho, managing director of Haver & Boecker Niagara’s Brazil operation. “With Ananda’s experience, education and passion for putting the customer first, I am confident that he will be an invaluable addition to our organization.”
