Minerals Council of Australia has appointed of Tania Constable PSM as the MCA’s new Chief Executive. According to the Council, Constable has extensive experience in the resources sector, having most recently worked as the Chief Executive of the Co-operative Research Centre for Greenhouse Gas Technologies (CO2 CRC).

She previously worked as a Senior Executive in the Australian Public Service, including as a Chief Adviser in the Revenue Group of The Treasury and the Head of the Resources Division in the Department of Industry. 

The MCA reports that it is pleased to have attracted such a high-calibre leader to the role of Chief Executive.

Constable is to lead the MCA’s continued strong and effective engagement and advocacy on behalf of the mining industry and the regional communities and jobs it supports.

This is supported by her experience in leading a membership-based organisation and in leadership roles in the Australian Public Service, her expertise in rigorous and high-quality policy development and her commitment to driving advocacy with stakeholders in government and the wider community.

The Board looks forward to consolidating the MCA’s strong position and working with government, the community, industry and other partners to continue to ensure our industry generates economic, financial and social benefits for all Australians in a sustainable and responsible manner.

Constable's commencement date with the MCA is to be announced in the coming period. David Byers will continue as Interim Chief Executive until Constable commences as Chief Executive.
