Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS - CHRIS LEES

THE com­pany be­hind a pro­posed bat­tery plant in Townsville has ap­pointed a man­ag­ing di­rec­tor.

Marc Vogts has taken the job at Mag­nis En­ergy Tech­nolo­gies.

Mr Vogts has a lot of ex­pe­ri­ence in high level min­ing com­pa­nies and projects.

He has held project di­rec­tor and vice pres­i­dent roles with min­ing gi­ants BHP Bil­li­ton and Rio Tinto.

In a state­ment to the Aus­tralian Stock Ex- change, Mag­nis chair­man Frank Poul­las said the com­pany was en­ter­ing into an ex­ten­sive growth phase and it was great to have Mr Vogts as man­ag­ing di­rec­tor.

“His ex­pe­ri­ence in run­ning com­plex projects with thou­sands of em­ploy­ees in some of the most dif­fi­cult ju­ris­dic­tions, for some of the largest com­pa­nies, will be crit­i­cal and of sig­nif­i­cant im­por­tance to the com­pany mov­ing for­ward,” he said.

Mr Vogts said he be­lieved he could lever­age off his project ex­pe­ri­ence to set up Townsville and New York for suc­cess.
