Integrated Mining Solutions (INMISO) recently onboarded two new members – Michael Mtirara (new COO and majority shareholder) and Dean Manyengawana. They bring fresh, innovative ideas to the firm’s highly competent, multi-disciplinary and dedicated team of experts.
With in-depth knowledge of the mining, construction and renewable energy sectors, INMISO’s team is able to provide fit-for-purpose legal counsel and a single point of entry to meet all the requirements in a complex and highly regulated industry. The two newest members bring vastly different but equally critical skills to the table.
“Michael, or Mike as we know him, is a seasoned project manager in the renewable energy sector. His electrical engineering qualifications make him a valuable team member who enhances our legal service offering in the mining and renewable energy industries,” said INMISO CEO and founding member, Robert Botha.
Mtirara is experienced in managing turnkey projects in substations, overhead lines and reticulation. He successfully managed highly complex projects in South Africa and other Sub-Saharan African countries, including working as project manager for the Nxuba Wind Farm project and Oysterbay Wind Farm Substation. On a project in Malawi, he led a team in the design, supply, civil works, installation and commissioning of four green field substations and five brown field substations including underground power cables.
“I am delighted to join INMISO as a shareholder and key team member looking after renewable energy projects,” Mtirara commented. “INMISO’s integrated approach and business model as well as their fresh approach to service excellence is an inspiration to me. Finding a bespoke solution for our clients is our motto.”
Manyengawana joins INMISO in the capacity of assistant legal project manager and will be helping with training, legal project management and mine community matters.
“I met Dean at this year’s Mining Indaba when both of us were attending the GC Forum hosted by Africa Legal and Hyve,” explained Botha. “Dean and I started talking. He’s a young man with immense potential that I took under my wing to mentor and assist him to navigate his way through the mining industry maze. A former student at the University of Pretoria, where he was involved in developing a financial literacy model, Dean brings a new dimension to our team focusing on community development, legal technology, training and legal project management. Dean adds great value to INMISO’s multidisciplinary approach to providing solutions to our clients.”
Manyengawana believes the legal industry is becoming more fast-paced and always in need of innovative solutions. “INMISO embodies what it means to be a 21st century firm with its multidimensional approach and grasp of legal tech and process management,” he said. “I’m excited to assist clients and address their pain points by offering solutions that cut across a broader set of disciplines than those historically defined in traditional legal practice.”
INMISO’s professionals’ experience and holistic approach to problem solving is what sets them apart and enables them to find effective and cost-efficient “from pit to product” solutions.
“We understand the legislative, regulatory, commercial, and corporate intricacies inherent to these industries and this positions INMISO as the go-to service provider when it comes to navigating the complex and formidable landscape of the local and global mining, construction and renewable energy sectors,” commented Botha.
