CME also announced Newmont Australia Regional Chief Financial Officer Felicity Hughes and Venturex’s Bill Beament have both been appointed to the role of Vice President.
Ms Hick succeeds Ivan Vella, who was appointed President in April 2020.
Ms Hick said she was excited to take on the presidency at a time of great opportunity for the mining and resources sector.
“I’m very proud of the way the entire sector has collaborated to operate both safely and effectively through the COVID-19 pandemic,” she said.
“And there are so many more exciting opportunities set to be realised.
The $140 billion in mining and resources sector projects in the pipeline around the state reflect how our sector will continue to support economic growth and job creation for WA for decades to come.”
CME Chief Executive Paul Everingham welcomed Ms Hick to her new role.
“I’ve been lucky enough to get to know Fiona through her involvement with CME as both Vice President and on our Executive Committee,” he said.
“Fiona is an extremely experienced, passionate and skilled leader within our sector and I know these qualities will be vital in her new role as President.”
