A MESSAGE FROM HENRY
WELCOME TO THE SEPTEMBER 2018 EDITION OF ROBUST MAGAZINE
The first half of the 2018 calendar year has been a busy period for the Group. We conducted a review of our strategy, conceptualised in 2014 and was deeply involved in two significant corporate transactions, one of which is still ongoing today. I discuss these events in the feature article of the magazine.
The principle of Engineered Excellence is one of the foundations of our decision making, ensuring that we achieve an outcome of “excellence” in everything that we do. RUC Cementation Mining has pioneered a digitalisation strategy, bringing certainty underground with digital solutions and competitive differentiation, an example of excellence in innovation. Further demonstrating excellence, is the Murray & Roberts Group Internal Audit team, which was recently awarded the highest quality excellence rating in their first assessment.
Also in this edition of Robust Magazine, our business platforms continue to add value to the communities in which they operate. Clough awarded bursaries to two of Western Australia’s brightest students and the Letsema Khanyisa bursary, offered to qualifying employees of Murray & Roberts within South Africa, impacted positively on the families of our employees.
I would like to extend a welcome to Mike da Costa and Trevor Naidoo who join the Murray & Roberts Corporate office. They will lead the Underground Mining platform in the role of platform CEO and CFO respectively, after Orrie Fenn’s retirement at the end of July. Orrie served for almost a decade on the Murray & Roberts Limited Board and was instrumental in guiding the Underground Mining platform in becoming a significant part of the Murray & Roberts Group. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Orrie for his service and valuable contribution and further congratulate Mike and Trevor on their appointments.
I hope you enjoy reading this edition of Robust.
