Perenti has announced changes to its group executive committee, with two new appointments.

Gabrielle Iwanow is to take over as president of Perenti’s contract mining division.

The company underlined Iwanow’s experience as one of Australia’s leading mining executives, having spent time working at senior operational and executive levels within the resources sector.

Perenti will move its current president of contract mining, Paul Muller, to a new role within the group executive committee.

“I would like to welcome Gabrielle to Perenti and thank Paul for his ongoing contribution to Perenti,” Perenti managing director and chief executive officer Mark Nowell said.

“This is an exciting time for the business as we continue to deliver on our purpose of creating enduring value and certainty for our clients, investors, our people and the communities in which we operate.”

Iwanow was named as one of the Top 100 global inspirational women in mining in 2020. Her career includes significant time in senior management positions at ASX-100 mining companies OZ Minerals and Rio Tinto.

She was most recently managing director and chief executive officer of Mincor Resources.

“A key strategic focus for the group is managing and developing our senior talent across the organisation, ensuring we have robust succession plans in place and continue building capability and capacity within our senior leader cohort, including within the group executive committee,” Norwell said.

“Gabrielle’s addition to our group executive committee provides the business with additional depth in talent as we continue to build on our record 2022–23 financial year results, transformative acquisition of DDH1, ongoing execution of our 2025 strategy and development of our 2030 strategy.”
