Co-founder
Australian Mine Services
Following several years of detailed research into the mining services industry, Julie Smith-Massara and her husband Ian, made the entrepreneurial decision to sell their house to finance the establishment of Australian Mining Services. Through offering superior technical innovation, quick friendly customer care and meticulous office controls, Julie was able to gain the confidence and business of large multi-national clients including BHP, Rio Tinto and MacMahon Holdings. Three years later, Australian Mine Services now employees 95 staff and is on target to reach a turnover of $20 million for 2007.
