Queensland Resources Council chief executive Michael Roche will step into an advisory role with a leading law firm following his retirement.
Mr Roche announced his intention to step down as chief executive in July, after more than 11 years in the role.
Today, law firm McCullough Robertson announced the appointment of Mr Roche in an advisory role to begin in February 2017.
Mr Roche said he was looking forward to working with the group to support its growth ambitions and strengthen its client offering.
“McCullough Robertson plays at every level of the resources chain,” Mr Roche said.
“The team embraces the tough, pioneering work of structuring and negotiating projects from the bottom up but is equally comfortable advising governments and peak industry bodies to help shape policy and legislation.”
Head of McCullough Robertson’s Resources Group Partner Damien Clarke said in an evolving market, the group was thrilled to have the opportunity to work with a true leader in the field.
“As our client base continues to expand, we look forward to tapping into Michael’s expertise to provide enhanced strategic insight and deliver our clients unmatched advice,” Mr Clarke said.
