Nautitech has gained Ian Pollard as our latest recruit. Ian is a seasoned veteran of the underground coal industry in Australia we are very pleased to have him aboard.

Ian, congratulations on joining the team at Nautitech! Thanks very much, I am very pleased with the decision. Nautitech has excellent products with supportive management and staff. I believe you need a strong work ethic and good people to work with to achieve the best results possible which Nautitech has.

Can you tell us a little bit about your background?

Yes my career has included 30 years with BHP Billiton Illawarra Coal. Becoming a Statutory Electrical Engineer in Charge of a coal mine has been a particular highlight for me. My achievement of the Six Sigma program through BHP has also proven to be very useful throughout my career.

Making a decision to break away from working at a mine directly to working in the supply chain has me given me a holistic view of the industry which has also been invaluable. Having spent 11 years working with Austdac Pty Ltd gave me a wealth of industry contacts and an understanding of manufacturing and its issues.

Where might we find you when you’re not working?

I enjoy motoring and travel and I am currently travelling through southern France with my wife!

Half your luck mate. Just make sure you come back… Congratulations again!
