Ray McQuillan to take on General Manager – Operations role at Minespec Parts!

We’d like to congratulate Ray on his transition to the role of General Manager – Operations. Ray is a pivotal part of the Minespec Parts team and has put in the hard yards to move into this new role. Ray speaks a little more about his approach to work, management and his plans for the future at Minespec Parts.

To me, being General Manager of Operations is about enjoying what you do and inspiring others around you to do the same. I encourage colleagues to do well each and every day, to not only further the business, but to improve our wellbeing as we spend a considerable part of our work life together. You need to enjoy what you do and always focus on job satisfaction, it’s not all about money, it’s about the work you produce day-in, day-out. 

Minespec Parts is growing rapidly. When I first began with Minespec it was as the Workshop Manager, so I had the opportunity to start on the ground and involve myself in the everyday running of the business. I was able to grasp a strong understanding of the ins and outs at Minespec Parts. I now know where we are at and where we need to be to fulfill Simon’s vision for the company.

I’ve worked hard to improve the end to end experience for our clients at Minespec Parts. Each day is unique and presents itself with different challenges and opportunities. Being agile to adapt is an absolute must along with a can-do attitude. Nothing will ever be too difficult to get the job done. It gives you a sense of pride once you see the end result and have a happy client.

Moving forward, as others join our team in the near future, I’ll be able to have eyes on the ground to review our processes and make improvements. Listening to colleagues’ suggestions and comments is instrumental for the growth of our business and team. A good listener will hear the good, the bad and the ugly and is able to make informed decisions. That’s what I aim to do – trial and implement new ideas until we find the best solutions. Never stop trying I say!

To our customers, I’d like to say thank you for your support and feedback, it is always welcome. Feel free to call anytime to find out what Minespec Parts can provide you and your business – we’re here to help!
