The company, which is already providing its integrated frontline scheduling software and real-time tracking solutions to mining operations in Australia and Africa, has opened new offices in Sudbury in Ontario, Canada.
Commit Works chose Sudbury for its vital role as a technology and innovation hub for the global mining industry. With more than a dozen mines within a 250km radius, Sudbury is less than four hours from Toronto, which is home to some of largest mining companies’ headquarters. With the international mining industry undergoing significant technological transformation, Sudbury is poised to become the centre of digital development in mining.
Paul Moynagh, CEO of Commit Works, said that he sees the expansion as an opportunity to create positive impacts abroad, as Commit Works looks to grow its team and recruit North American experts. He commented: “We’re excited to share our journey with some of the brightest minds in technology and mining, and we welcome the opportunity to develop the economy in the area by working with the local community.”
The announcement comes in the wake of two new appointments in the region: Joseph Gladu joins Commit Works as vice president for North America and Derek Polano steps into the role of adoption and results manager.
Moynagh stated: “We’re thrilled to be taking our products to North American clients, and I’m pleased to have Joe and Derek on board to drive that expansion.”
Joseph Gladu will primarily be responsible for growing Commit Works’ business in North America. Moynagh said: “Joe is an expert product evangelist with many years of experience in mining technology. He’s as passionate as we are at Commit Works about helping mining operations achieve improved safety, better adherence to plan and, ultimately, greater shareholder value. His contacts and strong relationships in the industry will be a great asset for us.”
Derek Polano is an experienced business improvement consultant with a specialisation in change management in the mining and industrial sectors. He will be responsible for implementing Commit Works software for clients, integrating it into their work and increasing their usage.
Moynagh commented: “Derek has worked for change management firm PACE and a number of miners in the Sudbury area, so he’s well placed to help Commit Works tap into a thriving mining cluster. We welcome his insight and are excited about the foundations he and Joe will be laying for Commit Works in North America.”
