Amiable boss at the Yabulu nickel refinery, he is Clive Palmer’s right-hand man in NQ. Has overseen tremendous growth at the refinery in the 18 months since Mr Palmer took over, and the company now makes $ 200 million a year. Has turned around the culture at Yabulu with his inclusive, consensus style and wields great influence in business circles. Example of a good boss working wonders with his staff.
