Welcoming Deane Criddle to our Board of Directors
Deane answered the call to join the Miners’ Promise Board of Directors earlier this year, and was officially endorsed onto the board to oversee the finance portfolio in April.
A Certified Practising Accountant, Deane has has worked in the mining and construction industry for the past decade, both overseas and in Australia. Since 2011, he has held a leading position within the Kellogg Joint Venture (KJV’s) accounting and finance team on the Gorgon EPCM Contract – often cited as one of the largest and most challenging LNG projects to be undertaken in Australia.
Deane also has past experience working with not-for-profit organisations as a board member, and was drawn to Miners’ Promise because of the uniqueness of the support it offers to resource worker families.
“I didn’t know a lot about the organisation when I first became involved with Miners’ Promise, but it quickly became apparent that the kind of support Miners’ Promise provides to its members is very unique,” said Deane.
“The fact that we can have support advisors on the ground working with families and individuals on a one-on-one basis, working out their specific needs when a crisis hits, is something that just can’t be bought in any type of insurance product or service.
“I think it’s really important to get this message out there, and I am committed to helping grow the organisation further by offering my expertise in the areas of strategic decision-making, organisational leadership and governance, to enable this to happen,” he added.
Deane is at the top of his field as a finance, accounting and a business professional, with a high level of demonstrated competency and strong commercially orientated accounting and finance experience. His credentials and expertise are a welcome addition to the Miners’ Promise organisation.
