Alan had been working in the open cut mining industry for over 45 years, working for both mine owners, mining contractors and more recently as a consultant. His experience has been gained in the UK, Australia, Vietnam and Indonesia. Although he has been involved in the extraction of minerals and precious metals, most of his career had been in coal mining.
For the last 25 years Alan had been working in Indonesia, and held positions as General Manager of a mining company, Advisor to the Board of Directors for PT Pamapersada Nusantara, Indonesia’s largest mining contractor, and Operations Director at PT Berau Coal before establishing PT Britmindo.
Alan was a Chartered Engineer who had presented many papers and publications on mining issues. He was a Member of the Institute of Civil Engineers (MICE) and a Fellow of the Australasian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy (FAusIMM).
Employees and friends recognized him as a teacher, a good father to the family and a Leader who had an incredible passion in loving his job. He motivated employees and provided a golden opportunity for us to be able to apply outstanding ideas in every work we perform.
Alan unfortunately passed away all too soon in 2015, a day after his 67th Birthday. He will always be remembered and cherished as our founding father, mentor and inspirational leader
