Mineral Resources (MinRes) has further strengthened its Board through the appointment of Justin Langer AM as an Independent Non-Executive Director, commencing from 1 January 2023.
Justin is a former Australian cricketer who made his Test debut in 1993 and played at national and international levels until 2007.
Following an illustrious 14-year playing career, Langer was appointed Head Coach of the Australian men’s cricket team in 2018, where he served until 2022. He led the team successfully through a difficult period in Australian cricket, which included severely disrupted international play through the COVID-19 pandemic.
Justin has been a member of the board of the West Coast Eagles Football Club since 2017 and is now a highly sought-after public speaker and media commentator.
Throughout his career, he has embraced partnership and mateship to build successful and resilient teams focused on strong internal culture.
MinRes’ Chairman James McClements said Justin’s appointment demonstrated the high premium the Board places on diversity of experience.
“As MinRes continues to grow, we believe bringing in a breadth of expertise and knowledge is key to our success,” McClements said.
“Justin’s outstanding leadership experience will further enhance our focus on people and culture, which is critical as we continue to expand our workforce to execute on our significant growth strategy.
Together with the recent announcement of Colleen Hayward as Non-Executive Director, the Board is now well-equipped to address the opportunities that lay ahead for our business.”
Justin said he was inspired by Chris Ellison and the Board’s vision for the future of MinRes and their commitment to the people who have helped make the business the success it is today.
“As a proud Western Australian, I understand the vital contribution of the resources industry and I’m excited to join such an outstanding WA success story.
“I look forward to making a meaningful contribution and bringing my leadership and people and culture experience to the Board from the new year.”
