Siecap’s energy division welcomes John Henderson and Matt Cooper, who are both trusted industry executives with a reputation for integrity and performance.


John Henderson brings over thirty-five years’ experience to Siecap’s Advisory Board, that encompasses developing and executing complex mining and energy projects in Australia, Africa and Asia.  His broad knowledge across mining and energy portfolios reinforces Siecap’s practical and customer-focused project delivery base and lends support to the company’s impressive history of delivering value to its clients.
