Board Chair Jonathan Loraine welcomed Mr Rossdeutscher, saying his appointment comes at a critical time for the Centre.

“Peter’s depth of experience in technology, resources and cross-sector development provides real value to CRC ORE and its body of work,” Mr Loraine said.

“Adding greatly to this is his acute awareness of how Cooperative Research Centres function, in addition to his commercialisation knowledge.”

“Now we’ve entered our final year of operation, Peter joins us at exactly the right time as we commercialise our signature innovations - Grade Engineering® and the Integrated Extraction Simulator.”

Mr Rossdeutscher is a Non-Executive Director of MinEx CRC - the world's largest mineral exploration collaboration, where he is also Chair of the Commercialisation Committee. He is also the Chair of the Mining and Energy Industry Advisory Board for SmartSat CRC – a national research initiative energising major satellite and advanced communications systems.

Based in Perth, Australia, Mr Rossdeutscher is also a Director of Atomic Sky Pty Ltd, Quantify Technology Pty Ltd, the Gravity Discovery Foundation and Founder of the Quantum Technology Exchange initiative (QuantumTX). He is a former global Managing Director and strategic advisor to range of companies, an INSEAD Certified International Board Director, experienced Entrepreneur and Adjunct Professor of Innovation at the University of Western Australia.

Mr Rossdeutscher said he is looking forward to being part of CRC ORE and contributing to its collaborative innovation.

“Joining an established CRC organisation in its final year is exciting as this is a critical period for ongoing value to public impact of the excellent work done tackling these major industry and societal challenges. I’m looking forward to working with the team,” he said.

“I aim to contribute to CRC ORE’s transition strategy, provide commercialisation and impact guidance, while also enabling the organisation to meet and exceed its commitments.”

“CRC ORE is an important asset the Australian mining industry and I look forward to helping contribute to its legacy.”

Mr Loraine also paid tribute to outgoing Director Gavin Yeates, whose term as Independent Non-Executive Director concluded 30 June 2020.

“We thank Gavin for his input and guidance throughout the last ten years, both as a director, and as the representative for Essential Participants,” Mr Loraine said.

“Gavin was able to instigate spirited conversation, challenge the status quo and help guide us to optimal outcomes.”

CRC ORE is now in its final year, with its Australian Government funded cooperative research operations to cease on 30 June 2021.
