Dr David Cameron

From 1998 to 2005 David performed a variety of heritage management roles with the Queensland government in forestry, natural resource management & conservation. In these roles he developed broad skills and experience in recording, significance assessment and operational management of historic and Indigenous heritage. David played a key role in developing cultural heritage management procedures for forestry and conservation area operations.
In late 2005 David joined global mining company Rio Tinto to oversee cultural heritage management for coal mining operations, projects and exploration in QLD & NSW. Over the next twelve years David broadened his experience and expertise as an operational manager with accountability for Indigenous and historic heritage management, community relations and native title matters.
David left Rio Tinto in December 2017 and established David Cameron Consulting.
