MineWare CEO and founder, Andrew Jessett (pictured), has stepped down from his role at the company to pursue new opportunities, the independent monitoring systems company says.
Jessett founded MineWare in 2005, after independently creating and commercialising Pegasys, an advanced dragline monitor system.
“I’m immensely proud of everything the MineWare team has achieved over the past 15 years and I will follow its next growth phase with interest,” Jessett said.
MineWare Chairman, Lyle Bruce, said Jessett had notched up many significant achievements in his 15 years at the company; “guiding its growth into a global company and then successfully integrating with Komatsu three years ago”.
He added: “We thank Andrew for the incredible legacy he has created, upon which we will continue to innovate and grow.”
MineWare teams are focused on continuing to deliver innovative customer solutions, Bruce said, while the leadership seamlessly transitions.
Jason Fisher, formerly MineWare’s Regional Vice President for Australasia, will now act as CEO, supported by the company’s long-standing senior leadership team, the company said.
The transition commenced early this year, with Jason and Andrew working closely together for an initial handover term.
