Australian Resources and Energy Group (AMMA) has welcomed to its Board of Directors Newcrest Mining’s chief people and sustainability officer Lisa Ali.

An accomplished resources and energy professional, Ali joined Newcrest Mining in February 2020 following a number of senior leadership roles in the oil and gas, petrochemical and manufacturing sectors.

Ali spent 12 years in various global positions with BP before joining Trinidad Petroleum as its head of transformation. Her international experience adds further capability to an already diverse group of AMMA directors.

“AMMA and its directors welcome Lisa Ali joining the Board of Australia’s national resources and energy industry group,” says AMMA chief executive Steve Knott.

“Ms Ali brings an international perspective on people leadership, having worked in executive roles in the Caribbean, Brazil, United Kingdom and Abu Dhabi for some of the world’s largest oil and gas companies,” he says.

“In addition, Ms Ali’s passion for developing the next generation of talent through diversity and inclusion will be a tremendous asset and aligns strongly with the vision and work of AMMA members.”
