INVESTING in African Mining Indaba, the world’s largest mining investment event, today, Tuesday, September 13, announced the appointment of Alex Grose as managing director of Mining Indaba, effective October 10.
Grose, formerly commercial director at Capacity Media, a division of Euromoney, the parent company of Mining Indaba, will succeed Jonathan Moore who is leaving the event after nearly nine years at its helm.
According to a press release from the company, Moore, is leaving to pursue a new career path with a United States consumer brand. Moore said: “Alex will be joining Mining Indaba at a great point in its history with what is arguably the best events teams in the business. His experience in the planning, execution, and launch of global events will be a fantastic complement to the team. The Mining Indaba has a sound strategy and one that is gaining significant traction in the market. Preparation for the 2017 conference is at an extremely advanced stage and I have no doubt that February in Cape Town will be the best Mining Indaba yet.”
In his seven years with the Capacity, Grose has spearheaded the launch of events on five continents. “I am extremely excited and honoured to be taking on the role of managing director of Mining Indaba. I am quite impressed with the changes that are in development for next year and look forward to being part of the team that delivers another outstanding event in 2017,” Grose said.
