Lucy Flemming joined Coal Services in August 2010 as Chief Financial Officer and was appointed Managing Director/CEO in December 2011, becoming the first female Director in the 90-year history of Coal Services and its predecessors.
Lucy’s career spans over 30 years during which time she has held executive positions in accounting, business, finance, investment and retail areas across both the private and public sectors. Her career includes 15 years of workers compensation experience, having spent seven years at WorkCover NSW where she managed various facets of workers compensation insurance.
Lucy continues to influence change in a challenging industry landscape by actively participating in forums, events and committees to raise the profile of Coal Services and its role in protecting workers and the NSW coal industry. She is a Trustee of the Coal Services Health & Safety Trust and sits on the NSW Mines Rescue Working Group, as well as advising many key industry health and safety groups and mining bodies. This involvement has been instrumental in building a robust specialist health and safety scheme, which over recent years has experienced injury rates and premiums at some of their lowest levels under her leadership.
Lucy holds a Bachelor of Business degree with a major in Accounting and sub-major in Law and is a qualified CPA. She is a Graduate Member of the Australian Institute of Company Directors, and has been a Director of Hospitality Employers Mutual Limited since February 2015.
