Past IQA President appointed as Earth Resources Regulation liaison


Victoria’s Earth Resources Regulation has appointed a past IQA President as independent stakeholder liaision.

Malempre’s role includes managing resolutions of stakeholder complaints and queries, along with improving complaint handling practices from the regulator.

His role also comprises guiding industry operators about regulatory approval processes and application requirements, while assisting Earth Resources Regulation (ERR) with their understanding of the extractive industry.

ERR believes Malempre will help improve the “timeliness and quality” of application submissions from the industry, which will ultimately shorten the review period.

Malempre has an extensive history in the resources sector, having worked at Boral across various roles in Victoria, South Australia and Queensland.

“After managing quarry operations in various roles in Victoria, South Australia and Queensland, I was appointed to a number of general management roles including general manager of Boral’s NSW Country Concrete and Quarries and Sydney Region Concrete and Quarries,” Malempre told Quarry.

“I then returned to Melbourne to take up the role of regional general manager for Victoria and Tasmania, responsible for Boral’s quarry, concrete, asphalt, transport and associated businesses across those states.”

Malempre’s final role with Boral before retirement was as national resources manager with geological and technical responsibility for all of Boral’s quarry operations throughout Australia. This also included assignments associated with acquisitions and development of projects in Europe, America, South East Asia and the Middle East.

After retiring from Boral, Malempre founded CONMATS, a consulting firm that provides advice to the construction materials industry.

Malempre is a long-time member of the IQA and served as President from 2006 to 2007. He has remained an Honorary Fellow of the Institute of Quarrying.
