As one of the continent’s most knowledgeable leaders in Mining Engineering, Bernard Swanepoel demonstrated, as CEO of Harmony Gold, the ability to manage the delicate balance between cost and optimised productivity through team work.

With more than 40 years’ experience in the South African mining industry, of which a quarter of a decade was in executive management, Swanepoel was recently appointed an independent non-executive director of construction and engineering group Aveng’s board, and he also serves on the boards of Impala Platinum, Zimplats and Omnia Holdings.

As a leader, he has passionately strived throughout his career to flatten the corporate hierarchy and remove unnecessary layers of management.
