Mr Werror said goodbye to everyone in a guard of honour that lined from the terminal to the aircraft, followed by a water cannon salute as the aircraft taxied to the runway.
A dinner was held last weekend where OTML management, employees, business partners and community leaders paid tribute to Mr. Werror’s service and contribution to OTML.
OTML Board Chairman, Dr. Roger Higgins, said Mr. Werror deserved all the congratulations and accolades for his many achievements and that he still had more to offer beyond OTML.
OTML Acting CEO, Mark Thompson, said in his speech to Mr Werror that, “You should leave in the knowledge that you have made an extraordinary contribution to OTML and to the people of the Western Province and Papua New Guinea. It has been a privilege to work with and for you, and be assured that we will all continue to work together in the spirit of ‘One Team, Wan Pasin’ to realise the journey you have commenced.”
Mr Werror encouraged everyone to continue to support OTML’s vision to be the leading mining company in PNG.
