3 July - Simon Trott, Chief Executive Iron Ore, Rio Tinto.

Rio Tinto, Iron Ore and Today's World.

Simon Trott, Chief Executive, Iron Ore. Rio Tinto.

Simon was appointed Chief Executive, Iron Ore in 2021.

Simon has been with Rio Tinto for more than 20 years in a variety of operating, commercial and business development roles across a number of commodities. Prior to his current role, Simon was Chief Commercial Officer from 2018 to 2021.

Simon knows Western Australia well. He is a graduate of UWA. He has a deep understanding of the iron ore business and customers globally. He is focused on transforming our Iron Ore business’s safe operational performance, delivering the mines of the future, positioning the Pilbara for a green steel future, and building strong partnerships with key stakeholders.

Simon states:
“I often say Western Australia can be the Silicon Valley of the mining industry – today we put our money where our mouth is, teaming up with a leading global start-up investor to back breakthrough technologies.

I recently posted about the enormous opportunities in our sector - https://lnkd.in/g4MrxuRh

To secure that future we must foster the next generation of innovations and lean into the risks inherent in trying something new.

With the backing of industry and the WA Government, the world's best start-ups will receive investment opportunities and access to real-world testing and scaling support, in a real boost to our local innovation economy. By investing in innovation we can ensure Western Australians continue to benefit from the resources sector well into the future.

This is a great example of industry and government coming together to support and accelerate innovation in WA. It’s possible that these startups will lead to jobs and opportunities that have not even been imagined yet”.

Simon’s presentation should be very informative, engaging and offering an insight into future developments in the resources sector in our great state.
