Prior to working at Railveyor, Tas acted as the CFO for a global architecture firm spanning Asia, North America, and the Middle East. She also notably served as vice-president of finance for Votorantim Cimentos & Aggregates, as well as the publicly traded Aecon Group Inc.

Based in Australia, Nik Gresshoff is a highly experienced and knowledgeable professional with a passion for mining. With previous roles at ABB, Siemens, and Schneider Electric (both local to Australia and globally), he has created country strategies, transformed sales structures and country setups, and designed global tools — all while bringing his team along on the journey.

His academic background ranges from a master’s in engineering to an MBA from Melbourne Business School, which has further equipped him with the knowledge and skills to lead and shape high-performing teams. In his time off, Nik explores his personal interests of aviation and gold prospecting.
