What We Do
Our clients retain us to help them reassess, redefine and reshape their boards and C-suites and to provide counsel on optimal structure, who might best add value and how to attract them.
A cohesive, progressive and effective senior leadership team defines success for any organization. We leverage our extensive network to find you innovative, visionary leaders who can skillfully navigate volatile industry and market cycles and increased government regulation, and ultimately drive shareholder value.
Our forte is executing difficult searches where technical skill intersects with commodity experience, challenging deliverables and remote location. We ensure that the talent pool is thoroughly explored, that all stakeholder relationships are professionally handled, and that you are appropriately involved throughout the process.
Whether you need a Mill Manager with focused knowledge of copper-zinc flotation, a Project Director with an extensive history of successful cold weather projects, or a Spanish-speaking metallurgist with world-class rare earth processing experience, we work closely with you to develop a focused engagement strategy and then implement it with care, skill, confidence and discretion.
We help you define your talent strategy and how your people’s contributions affect its success. We help you to ensure the right individuals are in the right roles, on the right teams, with the right expectations. We help you to effectively engage, hire, lead, motivate and reward employees, and to ensure that your corporate recruitment function – however it’s structured – is firing on all cylinders.

How We Work
We don’t intend to be all things to all people, and believe depth is better than breadth. Our strategic focus is exclusively on the mining and mineral processing space. It’s all we know and it’s all we do.
The intimate understanding of the industry, its key players and its global talent community that this tight focus provides helps us to not only better connect exceptional people with exceptional companies but to provide informed, objective and impactful business insight to our clients.
The key to our success is our relentless networking. We focus on finding talent in the market, not just talent on the market. We constantly prospect through the industry, forging strong relationships with “A players” regardless if they’re actively looking for new opportunities.
This has allowed us to develop a Rolodex of world-class candidates across a wide spectrum of markets, skills and locations who can ultimately drive bottom-line value to our clients.
We “get” you. We analyse your whole business environment, developing a comprehensive understanding of your organisation, culture, strengths, challenges and pain points.
We study your market focus, trends, and competitors. We isolate and focus on the key factors that will appeal to, and attract, top talent. And we will introduce you to only those candidates who are motivated by the right things and have the right combination of experience, aptitudes and competencies to perform at the highest level.
