Mining products and services provider, Schlam, today announced the appointment of new Chief Executive Officer, Matt Thomas and Chief Financial Officer, Ron Kurniadi. Current CEO and Founder, Ryan Schlam will continue to add his vast experience and technical knowledge of the mining industry to the business as Executive Director on the Board of Schlam.

Mr Thomas is an experienced CEO who has previously held similar positions with Coffey International, ASCO Group and hard rock mineral seismic exploration company HiSeis.  

"Matt brings to Schlam the capacity to lead and drive our three-year strategic plan with a heightened level of organisational governance and operational discipline.

His experience building and mentoring high-performance teams, knowledge of the mining and minerals industry and a commitment to our ideology, makes him a great fit for a company on the growth trajectory such as ours” said Ryan Schlam.

Ron Kurniadi joins Schlam as Chief Financial Officer alongside Mr Thomas. He brings with him extensive experience gathered from similar roles in both Australia and South East Asia at companies such as Clough, AGC and UGL. In his role, Mr Kurniadi will act as Company Secretary for all Schlam entities.

"While Schlam already has products on six continents, we believe that to achieve our goal of being on every mine site in the world we need a CFO with international exposure and knowledge. Ron gives us this and more in spades," said Mr Schlam.

The new CEO and CFO will focus on Schlam’s three-year strategic growth plan, allowing Ryan Schlam to concentrate on efforts beyond this timeline.

“Schlam has grown from a small manufacturing business in WA’s south to a company of global significance. While I am immensely proud of our achievements to date, I also believe that Matt and Ron are the right people to steer us into the future,” said Mr Schlam.
