BBE Australasia, part of an international group of mine ventilation and refrigeration specialists, is continuing to grow with two new and exciting business streams being developed. Over in Brisbane, a coal mining specific consulting service will be headed by Marle Hooman and in Perth, a specialist project engineering service, headed by Hans Möhle, to assist and support EPCM and/or Client construction teams.

To support these new business streams, we have appointed Leon van den Berg as Technical Director.  Leon’s wealth of technical and client experience will further strengthen BBE’s commitment to service excellence for our clients. Taking over from Leon’s role as MD for BBE Australasia is Ray Funnell, as an interim Chief Operating Officer.

Ray is a Director of BBE Australasia and serves as Director of the global BBE Group. With over 27 years of global experience, Ray will play a significant role in the overall management and strategic direction of the Australasia business and is the official liaison officer between the Johannesburg, Perth, and Brisbane offices. We would like to officially welcome Ray to the Australasia team and congratulate Leon, Hans & Marle on their exciting roles, continuing to evolve, meet and exceed the needs of our clients in Australasia and throughout the world.
