Senior Management

Anthony Julien


Anthony’s business career is underpinned by energy and an entrepreneurial spirit refined by the experience of developing and selling various companies in IT, wholesale/distribution and media. He strengthened these capabilities with a move to enterprise level organizations when he sold his mobility software company to Epicor in 2009 and took on the global mobility sales responsibilities.


Building on his global sales experience with Epicor, Anthony joined SAP in 2011. His new role focused on providing SAP mobility solutions to major accounts in retail, mining and energy. This experience fostered his interest in resource-based industries and created an opportunity to reconnect with the Sentient Group who funded his early entrepreneurial business success.

Anthony’s other senior management roles are:

  • Chairman of Rio Madeira- a joint venture with Cancana (V.CNY) to expand existing production and further develop its manganese mining leases in Brazil

  • CEO of Ferrometals Holdings- Developing industrial minerals projects in Brazil and the United States to provide products to both the agricultural and steel industries
