Martin Ferguson joins UWA board

Former federal minister for resources and energy Martin Ferguson has joined the University of Western Australia’s Energy and Minerals Institute.
He has been appointed to the institute’s board of trustees along with Andrew Harding, chief executive of Rio Tinto’s iron ore product group; Terry Freckelton, general manager of development (Australia/New Zealand) for Shell Australia, and BHP Billiton head of group project management, Phil Montgomery.
UWA vice-chancellor Professor Paul Johnson said the incoming board members were a trusted group of industry and government representatives who had worked with UWA for many years and shared the university’s vision of the state as an international centre of excellence in resources and energy research.
“It is a privilege to have Martin Ferguson share his many years of parliamentary expertise with our board,” Johnson said. “I look forward to developing our relationship further as we guide the Energy and Minerals Institute to achieve our objectives of leading research, contributing to global knowledge and meeting the needs of local, national and international communities.”
