Meeting Ian Hartnell

Last week Dr. Christoph Beyer (Managing Director), Mark Christmas (Supply Chain Manager) and Suren Dias-Jayasinha (Head of Sales & Marketing) had the pleasure of meeting Ian Hartnell.

Ian was instrumental in establishing the QMAG business over 30 years ago when he was initially engaged as a consultant from Bank of America and then shortly afterwards as the Deputy Managing Director of Queensland Metals Corporation, responsible for all commercial matters, directly working for QMAG’s founder Ian Howard-Smith. Ian regaled us with stories from the heady times in the 1980s and 1990s as Queensland Metals Corporation established QMAG as a viable business and a producer of the highest quality refractory products from one of the largest crypto-crystalline magnesite deposits in the world.
