Bob Perry, Port Gregory’s versatile and reliable processing supervisor

15 years of service

Though Bob Perry recently celebrated 15 years with GMA, he has been around for much longer.

Initially, Bob was working on and off for the company and he eventually joined the team full-time on 19 July 2005.

Over the years, Bob has held multiple roles including Leading Hand, Supervisor, Quarry Supervisor, and Production Superintendent. Currently serving as Processing Supervisor, he oversees the production crew at the Wet Plant at Port Gregory in Western Australia.

Having excelled in every position that he has fulfilled, Bob achieved formal recognition from the WA Mines Department in 2019. He has received his Quarry Managers Ticket and is now eligible to take on the statutory Quarry Manager role.

Colleague Wayne Dawson isn’t surprised, saying, “Bob has been extremely versatile filling any role the company required. He is a very cool, calm, and collected guy and really approachable.”

Kevin Aitkins, another coworker, agrees. “Bob is… quiet but a wealth of knowledge at GMA. It’s been a good 15 years together!”

When asked why he chose to stay with GMA, Bob replies with, “Always good company to work for, good people to work with.”
