Greg Field, General Manager, Oyu Tolgoi
Proudfoot told us they have a flat organization. Many big companies say this when they have senior people doing the sales before sending junior people to do the work. Not Proudfoot: the on-site team was genuinely made up of the most senior people – it was fantastic. Jon Wylie (Proudfoot's President, Global Natural Resources) was here every six weeks.

Open Pit Gold Mine: The CEO's concern with his open-pit gold mining operation in Peru, was the decline in metal prices and an increase in cost per ton. Additionally, as the productive life of the mine was coming to an end, establishing an organizational structure that was in line with the current reality to maintain a cost-effective operation was paramount to success.
