TMEC Announces CEO Transition


President of the Tasmanian Minerals, Manufacturing and Energy Council (TMEC), Mr Ben Maynard wishes to advise all stakeholders of Mr Wayne Bould’s intention to retire from the role of CEO.

Mr Bould has been involved with TMEC since 2008, as director. He became president in 2012 and then CEO in 2014. During that time Mr Bould has been instrumental in leading the transformation and restructuring of TMEC. The organisation’s contribution to strategic changes in Tasmania’s economy is well recognised and has been enabled by Mr Bould’s leadership.

Mr Maynard said, “The Board gratefully appreciates Wayne’s passion, wisdom and drive to bring about a number of key changes in the operation of TMEC in support of our industry.”

“Wayne has been integral in TMEC fulfilling the vital role of promoting the development of sustainable exploration, mining, industrial processing and manufacturing sectors. This has included leveraging of Tasmania’s Advanced Manufacturing sector to be an even larger contributor to the economy and the provision of vocational education opportunities for all Tasmanians.”

From 3 June 2019, Mr Ray Mostogl will commence his appointment as CEO. Ray has nearly 40 years of industry experience and has been an active contributor to TMEC as a past president. Ray and Wayne have worked closely together previously and will continue to do so with Wayne remaining in a Strategic Advisor role for the next 6 months. This will ensure a smooth transition and support the progression of a number of strategic projects. Ray will continue to support both TasTAFE and Keen Partners while in his role with TMEC.

“The Board acknowledges Wayne’s significant contribution over the last 11 years, and we wish him all the very best through the transition to his retirement. We welcome Ray Mostogl as incoming CEO and look forward to continued momentum and positive advocacy for our industry,” Mr Maynard said.
