Mining products and services provider Schlam named Matt Thomas as its new chief executive officer as well as Ron Kurniadi as chief financial officer. The new CEO and CFO will focus on Schlam’s three-year strategic growth plan, allowing current CEO and founder Ryan Schlam to concentrate on efforts beyond this timeline.
“Schlam has grown from a small manufacturing business in WA’s south to a company of global significance. While I am immensely proud of our achievements to date, I also believe that Matt and Ron are the right people to steer us into the future,” said Ryan Schlam. He will continue to add his vast experience and technical knowledge of the mining industry to the Perth-based company as executive director.
Thomas is an experienced chief executive who previously held similar positions with Coffey International, ASCO Group and hard rock mineral seismic exploration company HiSeis. Kurniadi brings with him extensive experience gathered from similar roles in both Australia and Southeast Asia at companies such as Clough, AGC and UGL. In his newest role, Kurniadi will act as company secretary for all Schlam entities.
