WorleyParsons (0.18 MB)
 

Following the acquisition earlier this year of project house TWP by Australian-based WorleyParsons, the global project delivery company has announced that Digby Glover, previously Chief Executive Officer of TWP Holdings, has been appointed as Chief Executive Officer of WorleyParsons RSA. Glover has been employed by the TWP group since 2001, and has held the role of Chief Operating Officer for WorleyParsons RSA for the past eight months.

“Digby has been responsible for the transition of the TWP operations into WorleyParsons and the operations of the business generally, as well as for establishing Johannesburg as a mining execution centre for WorleyParsons globally. He is therefore well placed to lead the combined South African business post integration,” says Francis McNiff, WorleyParsons’ Managing Director Operations – Sub-Saharan Africa.

To support Glover in his new role and the integration of the Johannesburg and Pretoria operations into a consolidated delivery centre, a number of additional changes have come into effect as of 28 October. Martin Simmonite, who has been with WorleyParsons for many years, with his most recent position being operations manager for Pretoria, will take on the role of Chief Operating Officer, responsible for all the operations within the location. Henry Jonker has been appointed Operations Manager for Johannesburg, responsible for the day-to-day operational management of the Johannesburg business. Henry brings many years of experience, having been responsible for all regional offices within TWP before the acquisition. Johan Swart, also with WorleyParsons RSA for the last two years, will take on the role of Operations Manager for Pretoria.

WorleyParsons acquired TWP to grow its capacity and capability in the mining and processing global market. The acquisition positions Johannesburg as the mining and precious metals processing hub for project delivery in sub-Saharan Africa as well as throughout the world. The South African operations has niche expertise in underground mining, particularly in hard-rock and precious minerals and metals, including most base metals, coal, platinum, gold, diamonds and ferrous metals, and has been involved in some of the most complex underground mining projects in South Africa and further afield.
