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 moved to Snowden Consultants in Perth before co-founding ORELOGY with Steve Craig in 2005.
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.
When ORELOGY MD Steve Craig was seconded to Maptek in 2014 as part of the Evolution software acquisition, Ross remained at ORELOGY and took the reins as MD. He managed ORELOGY from 2014 through to late 2017, successfully 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 of ORELOGISTS continues to grow and develop ORELOGY's team and capabilities, now as part of the larger idoba ecosystem.
