Tania Constable has been appointed as the Minerals Council of Australia’s (MCA) next chief executive officer.
Constable has extensive experience in the resources sector, having most recently worked as the chief executive of the Co-operative Research Centre for Greenhouse Gas Technologies (CO2CRC).
She previously worked as a senior executive in the Australian Public Service, including as a chief adviser in the Revenue Group of The Treasury and the head of the resources division in the Department of Industry.
Constable will lead the MCA’s continued strong and effective engagement and advocacy on behalf of the industry and the regional communities and jobs it supports.
The MCA believes Constable is well placed for the leadership role, “given her deep knowledge of Australia’s resources industry, her experience in leading a membership-based organisation and in leadership roles in the Australian Public Service, her expertise in rigorous and high-quality policy development and her commitment to driving advocacy with stakeholders in government and the wider community.”
Constable’s starting date with the MCA is yet to be confirmed. In the meantime, David Byers will continue as interim CEO.
