MineWare announces leadership transition

MineWare CEO and founder Andrew Jessett has stepped down from his role at the company to pursue new opportunities.

“Andrew has dedicated more than 15 years of his life to MineWare and has notched up many significant achievements in this time; guiding its growth into a global company and then successfully integrating with Komatsu three years ago,” MineWare Chairman Lyle Bruce said.

“We thank Andrew for the incredible legacy he has created, upon which we will continue to innovate and grow.”

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 teams are focused on continuing to deliver innovative customer solutions, Bruce said, while the leadership seamlessly transitions.

“Though we will miss Andrew, we are confident MineWare is in very capable hands,” Bruce said.

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 transition commenced early this year, with Jason and Andrew working closely together for an initial handover term.
