As MEC Mining continues to experience exponential growth in demand for geotechnical services, we are pleased to announce that Julianne Armstrong is stepping into the role of Geotechnical Manager for the global mining consultancy.

MEC Mining Chief Executive Officer, Christofer Catania, states that Julianne has impressed during her 18 months with the company. “MEC’s expansion of our geotechnical services arm was part of the company’s vision to provide clients with a full suite of technical services. Julianne has played a pivotal role in achieving that, improving our both capabilities and client base, resulting in a solid pipeline of work.”

He says “She has a winning combination of knowledge, great communication skills and passion for what she does. Julianne has already proven herself a valuable and respected member of the MEC team and will undoubtedly be a great asset in her new role to our clients.”
