  The growth of our long-term relationships with clients is built on demonstrating we care about their business and the success of their organization.

Jon Treen

Senior Vice President, Business Leader, Mining; Regional Business Leader, Mining (International & US)

Tempe, Arizona

Jon improves safety and productivity in mine operations. He lives a philosophy of building relationships by caring about his clients’ business and success. A practiced speaker and advocate for mine safety and incident prevention through design, Jon has dedicated his career to improving mine operations all over the world—after all, mining is a global industry.

In a previous role as general manager of operations for one of Canada’s largest integrated underground operations, Jon demonstrated his commitment to his projects by consistently spending time underground speaking with the miners (2,500 of them). Not just about work, but what was important to them as individuals. Jon enjoys working to design mines that wouldn’t exist without an innovative and collaborative approach.

In the next five to ten years, Jon sees our Mining Business Line turning into a full-service mining provider, and it’s his ambition to seek those opportunities day by day. When he’s not at work, Jon might be golfing or playing hockey, and he and his family travel whenever they get the chance.

WHAT I'M UP TO

THE CONFERENCE TRAIL
Safety starts with design. I presented on this concept to the Society of Mining Engineers at their annual conference in 2015.

I recently chaired a session on operational improvements for the American Exploration and Mining Association. My suggested methods would improve productivity and safety in underground mines.

WHAT I’M READING
As the mining industry becomes more capital intensive, finance books like The Investor’s Manifesto by William J. Bernstein help us find ways to reduce costs and further understand the financing side of our projects.

IN THE NEWS
Ever thought about the hidden benefits in a downturn? In a presentation for 250 mining students at the sixth annual Mining Day at Laurentian University, some colleagues and I show that there’s at least one.

IN MY COMMUNITY
For nearly 20 years, I’ve been involved in Miners for Cancer, a charity that unites miners from different companies and locations to raise research money through hockey, softball, and golf tournaments.

I serve on the advisory board for the Bharti School of Engineering at Laurentian University in Sudbury, Ontario.
