Mineral Resources has appointed a new Independent Non-Executive Director to its Board, along with other leadership changes throughout the company.
Jacqueline McGill has been appointed to the role, due to her background as a highly credentialed mining executive and gender equity champion.
During a career across commodities including iron ore, copper, gold, coal and uranium, Ms McGill has held leadership roles spanning operations, business development, technology and project management.
At BHP, Ms McGill held Chief Executive level positions at Mitsui Coal and Olympic Dam Corporation, where she delivered a successful turnaround of business performance.
In 2020, Ms McGill was awarded an Officer of the Order of Australia for her distinguished services to the mining sector, and to gender equity and workplace diversity.
MinRes has also announced that Independent Non-Executive Director, Kelvin Flynn, has resigned from the MinRes Board after 14 years of significant contribution to the company’s growth.
MinRes said that Mr Flynn has been a highly valued board member during a period of transformation for MinRes, including nine years as chair of the Audit and Risk Committee.
Jenna Mazza has also been appointed joint Company Secretary. Ms Mazza joined MinRes in 2014 and has held a number of senior legal roles, most recently as General Manager, Corporate Legal.
MinRes Managing Director, Chris Ellison, thanked Mr Flynn for his contribution to MinRes over the past 14 years.
“His can-do attitude is the epitome of MinRes’ values. I wish him every success in the future,” Mr Ellison said.
“We are pleased to have a director with Jacqueline’s extensive operational experience join the MinRes board as the company continues to deliver on the key projects that are the foundation of our future success.”
MinRes Chairman, James McClements, said that Mr Flynn’s guidance and commercial insight have been integral to the company’s transformation from a mining services contractor into one of Australia’s great companies.
“On behalf of my fellow directors, I am delighted to welcome Jacqueline to the MinRes Board,” Mr McClements said.
“She brings vast experience across multiple commodities, as well as a reputation as a champion of gender equity and workplace diversity.”
