SRK Consulting Announces New CEO


May 1, 2021

DENVER, CO – MAY 2021 – SRK is pleased to announce that Tim McGurk is taking over as group CEO at the company’s global executive meeting in mid-April. Given his 3 decades of resource industry experience, 13 of which are with SRK, Tim is well positioned to guide the company in servicing its clients within an increasingly competitive market. A specialist in underground mining based in Cardiff, Tim manages multidisciplinary technical studies and provides expert input to due diligence studies and competent person’s and independent engineer reports. His senior management experience includes strategic and concept planning, operations management, and business planning for major and mid-tier mining companies. Tim became a director of SRK (UK) and the SRK Group in 2015.

“I am delighted to take on a new role as CEO,” said Tim, “including supporting SRK’s aim to be recognized as the mining industry’s partner of choice.  With our sector changing faster than ever, our teams must continue to adapt, collaborate, and innovate to provide the sustainable and economic solutions that our clients and involved stakeholders expect.”

Tim replaces Andy Barrett, who stepped down earlier this year as president of SRK (North America) and now also steps down as group CEO, after 16 years in the role.  Andy will continue his 40-year tenure at SRK through project work and internal advisory roles.

Tim and SRK Board Chair Jeff Parshley express sincere thanks to Andy for his dedicated leadership and support of SRK’s practices. Exemplifying the qualities of the company’s founders, Andy has helped SRK to adapt and fulfil its clients’ unique project requirements worldwide.

“Given Andy’s considerable achievements as global CEO,” said Jeff, “it’s hard to adequately convey our depth of gratitude for his energy and wisdom over the years. While we’ll miss his direct guidance, we’re glad to know he remains within the SRK family. I now look forward to working with Tim and seeing SRK benefit from the enthusiasm and new perspectives he brings to the role of CEO.”
