I am the Group Lead Information Management for De Beers Mineral Resource Management. I provide technical leadership to De Beers operations, and assurance to the De Beers board on matters regarding MRM Information Management.
Prior to 2008 I worked as a business process architect, analyzing, optimizing and modeling numerous business processes throughout the mining pipeline. Using the enterprise architecture principles, a framework was created for corporate governance to manage various corporate guidelines and procedures.
My career in De Beers started as a software engineer where I architected, developed, and supported the De Beers Marine technical information systems. These systems form the foundation of the marine mining operations in both South Africa and Namibia.
Prior to my career in De Beers, I worked in the South African Aerospace industry as a system analyst focusing on software systems for a satellite launching vehicle, and also lectured Computer Science at the Cape Technikon
