A multi-dimensional resources company will welcome back a key leader just months after he resigned from the company.

Bravus Mining and Resources (formerly known as Adani Australia) has rehired Lucas Dow less than six months after he stepped down as chief executive.

Dow, who kept himself busy in a board director role at the same company, will not only return as CEO but also with the added responsibility of Australia country head.

Two replacements in six months

He will take over from his two consecutive successors including David Boshoff, who was promoted from project director to the top job back in July 2020, and outgoing CEO and country head Jeyakumar Janakaraj.

Janakaraj described his seven years as country head and very short stint as Australia CEO as a “remarkable journey”. He will next lead new business ventures for parent company Adani abroad and stay on as a board director at the Australian operations.

“During my time at Adani Australia we have had significant wins and also some challenges along the way, and it is incredibly satisfying to be handing the leadership of the business over to Lucas Dow, who we know from experience will reliably steer the ship moving forward,” he said in a public statement.
