employees and the support of
my management. I get to work
with a vast range of Bradken
employees from different
countries and cultures. I have
been lucky to have made
so many great friends over

Bradken people that I met in
1982 who are still my close
friends and whose kids grew
up with my kids. Some of them
have gone on to much higher
achievements in our company.
