Ross has been employed professionally since 1990, and has extensive operational and planning experience. This includes working in Australia, Ghana, Malaysia, Myanmar and Ireland. He began his consulting career in 2001 with CSA in Dublin, then with Snowden Consultants in Perth before co-founding ORELOGY with Steve Craig in 2005.
As a Director and Principal Consultant with ORELOGY, Ross has managed work on numerous projects in a range of commodities, scales and locations across the globe. He has undertaken all aspects of the mine planning cycle with an emphasis on costing and financial modelling. Ross has always been primarily focused on the consulting aspects of the ORELOGY business. So when Steve Craig was seconded to Maptek in 2014 as part of the Evolution software aquisition, it was a natural decision that Ross would remain at ORELOGY and take the reins as MD. He managed ORELOGY from 2014 through to late 2017, succesfully keeping the team of Orelogists together through a difficult period in the mining industry.
In late 2017 Steve returned to ORELOGY after completing his tenure with Maptek and resumed his role as MD, with Ross supporting him as Technical Director. This "dynamic duo", along with a stable core team of Orelogists, had been extremely succesful in the past, and was now well positioned to contnue this success moving into the future.
