Woodside Petroleum executive Jeroen Buren has been named acting president of the Chamber of Minerals and Energy of Western Australia, filling the role left vacant by Brian Reilly, who has moved to Canada to take on a new role with Cameco.

CME chief executive Reg Howard-Smith said Mr Buren had extensive experience in the resources sector, including senior roles with Shell and most recently Woodside, where he serves as senior vice-president production.

Mr Buren has worked for Woodside since 2009, and has sat on CME’s executive council since 2013.

He will serve as acting president while CME searches for a permanent replacement, with nominations for the roles of president and vice-president to take place at the chamber’s AGM next month.

Mr Howard-Smith paid tribute to Mr Reilly, who served in the role as president since mid-2013.

“Brian has led CME admirably through a period of challenge and change in WA’s resources sector,” Mr Howard-Smith said.

“During this time the industry has changed significantly, particularly as it moves from construction to production.

“Brian has returned to Canada to take up a new, expanded role at Cameco’s head office.”
