Maptek has made two senior appointments to streamline delivery of its exciting Technology Roadmap to customers. The new positions are Chief Technology Officer and Head of Development, Mine Planning. As Chief Technology Officer (CTO), Simon Ratcliffe will manage technology strategy and how this can improve the value of planning and operational information for mines. He will be supported by an expert research and development team tasked with a renewed focus on data management and solution integration. A top priority for the new CTO was to appoint a leader of software development for exploration, geological modelling and mine planning. Jimmy Howlum has now been named as Head of Development, Mine Planning. Howlum looks forward to steering Vulcan and Eureka development from a broad cross-product view. He sees the Maptek Workbench as the linchpin for data sharing and enhancing end-user experience.
