Vale Tony Dixon

It is with great sadness we advise that former Australian Steel Institute Chief Executive Tony Dixon passed away on Friday 5 July.

Tony joined the ASI as Chief Executive in 2015 after more than 25 years in executive roles in the Australian and International steel and mining industries. Tony’s great strength over the past 4 years has been his ability to represent the entirety of the Australian steel value chain in both the public and private spheres. Tony has focused on growing the market for steel in infrastructure and construction projects in Australia, benefiting industry participants at every level. At the same time, he has ensured the ASI is a leader in innovation, compliance and safety in Australian industry.

For ASI staff he has been a strong leader, encouraging and empowering everyone to achieve their best. He was unafraid of change and strengthened strategy, governance and resilience in the organisation while always maintaining close personal relationships with his team.

On behalf of ASI staff and Members, and the whole Australian steel supply chain, we would like to acknowledge Tony’s lifetime contribution to our great industry.

We offer our heartfelt condolences to Tony’s wife Sonia and their three daughters.

Phil Casey

Interim CEO
Australian Steel Institute
