Rod has 30 years' experience across the mining and natural resources sector, which include roles ranging from operational (logistics, preparation, distribution) and commercial (trading, marketing, origination) to senior executive management responsibilities. He has a first class reputation, with an exceptional and proven track record, for exceeding targets, and developing, implementing and delivering strategy. Rod has strong experience in the coal mining, natural resources, energy, renewable fuels, biomass, materials handling and mineral processing sectors.
He established Savage Resource Ltd in 2003, specialising primarily in the coal, commodity and energy sectors, with capabilities to trade coal and coke, and develop natural resources and commodity related projects and infrastructure globally. More recently, Rod has entered into Waste-to-Energy (W2E), RDF and SRF. He has recognised that these evolving markets, and the associated technology and future direction, will be closely aligned to the sectors that Savage Resource has vast experience in, and has therefore participated in its evolution to create a sustainable market.
