The company says Hooper will help grow its presence in the country, working one-on-one with new and existing customers to provide the equipment and services they need to maximise the profitability of their aggregates and mining operations.
Hooper has more than 35 years of industry experience in a career that has evolved from engineering into sales and, most recently, management. His work experience in the mining industry has been primarily in mobile and fixed plant applications across Australia.
“Duncan is a great addition to the Haver & Boecker Niagara team,” said Peter Kilmurray, vice president of sales at Haver & Boecker Niagara’s North American and Australian operations. “He focuses on the big picture to find creative ways to solve problems, while still paying attention to the details that matter to customers — an approach that mirrors the philosophy of Haver & Boecker Niagara as whole.”
Hooper resides in Perth, Australia and is originally from Birmingham in England, where he studied management at the Open University.
“My goal is to help Haver & Boecker Niagara achieve a greater footprint in the Australian market,” Hooper said. “And that starts with the individual customer. Our success hinges on helping customers optimise their own operations, and we plan to do that by offering the same level of quality and service that Haver & Boecker Niagara is known for globally.”
