Australian Aluminium Council appoints Executive Director
The Australian Aluminium Council today announced the appointment of Marghanita Johnson as its new Executive Director.
Marghanita succeeds Miles Prosser who is leaving the Council after eleven years at its helm to take up the position of Secretary General of the International Aluminium Institute in London.
Marghanita has over 20 years of experience in the Australian mining and manufacturing sectors, including a large part of her career within the aluminium industry. She led government engagement and advocacy on behalf of Pacific Aluminium for five years and has held key climate and sustainability roles at Rio Tinto. Since 2016 Marghanita was Director of Grove Resources, consulting to the infrastructure, not-for-profit and emerging minerals sectors.
Michael Parker, President Australian Aluminium Council, said Marghanita’s depth of industry experience combined with her stakeholder engagement capability would be an enormous asset to the Council.
“Her energy and enthusiasm will be critical as we continue to position our industry for a sustainable future,” Mr Parker said.
“In welcoming Marghanita, I acknowledge Miles for his leadership, and expert navigation of complex and highly political policy issues over the past decade and wish him continued success in his new role.”
Marghanita will work closely with Miles Prosser over coming months to ensure a smooth transition into the Council.
