Keep up with the latest executive movements across the mining sector, headlined by former Adani Mining chief executive Lucas Dow taking leadership of Adani Australia.

Adani Australia has welcomed previous Adani chief executive officer and Bravus Mining and Resources company director Lucas Dow back to its helm, filling the role of country head and chief executive officer.

Dow replaces current Adani country head and chief executive Jeyakumar Janakaraj as he moves on to lead Adani’s business ventures outside of Australia.

Janakaraj served as chief executive and country head for seven years and concurrently serves as chief executive of Adani Global at the company’s Singapore headquarters.

He will continue to play an active role in some of the Australian business as a board director and Dow will continue to be a director of Omni Resources.

In Dow’s new role, he will be responsible for Adani’s mining, rail, port and renewables business in Australia.

He stepped down as chief executive of Adani in July, remaining with the company as a director.

“During my time at Adani Australia we have had significant wins and also some challenges along the way,” Janakaraj said.

“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.

“It is the right time for a change as the Adani Australia businesses each move into their next phases.”

An Adani spokesperson confirmed that there would be no change of leadership to the newly rebranded Adani Mining, now Bravus Mining and Resources business, or Adani’s other Australian port, rail and renewables ventures.
