  • Louise Franklin

    Engineering Manager – Manufacturing at MaxiTRANS

    Michael Akindeju worked as a key contributor to small, medium and large projects during his time at Gekko Systems Pty Ltd. A significant amount of his time was spent on a large project which required contributions during the design, manufacturing, installation and commissioning phases. This project was successfully handed over the client and is currently in its first couple of months of operation. Michael was always prompt, accurate and appreciated the importance, and the complex nature of project inputs in the mineral processing industry. He was a quiet, well mannered, valued member of the team.
  • Chaudry Ahsan Amin

    Key Account Manager at AAM

    Michael supervised my thesis for my B. Engg Chemical (Hons) degree. I found him an excellent mentor who helped my team and I develop process engineering and academic research skills, and his mentoring towards me has extended past academics to the professional arena. He is knowledgeable in his field, methodical in his approach to projects, systematic in problem solving and has good interpersonal skills.

    Engineering Manager at Gekko Systems

    Michael Akindeju has very strong understandings of all aspects of process engineering. His back ground and skills also allows him to research and apply new skills quickly and with fantastic results for the client. No problem is too hard for Michael and he seems to enjoy the challenge of taking on problems other people try to avoid.
  • Rawand Kader

    I studied and worked with Michael Akindeju. It is rare to find the quality engineers who are good not only technically but also in economics, project costing and management, banking and finance, reporting and who are good team members and always willing to help and share knowledge. You will find all of that in Michael. Michael pays attention to details and always endeavours to deliver excellence and his tasks.
  • Damon Buchanan

    Technical Process Superintendent at Kirkland

    I can highly recommend Michael in the mineral processing field. Michael conducted a throughput increase review for my department in 2017. The report was professional, as per scope, on time and had very interesting solutions that were well thought out and made use of the limited resources available at that time
  • Tim Hughes

    Process Engineering Manager at Gekko Systems Pty Ltd

    Michael Akindeju worked with me on the Hera base metals project from the commencement of detailed design to successful commissioning. As this period was less than 16 months, we had to work very quickly and efficiently and Michael was outstanding in this regard. His dedication to getting the job done was a critical part of this successful project and to all the work we did together at Gekko systems and I have no hesitation in recommending him.
  • Ashwin Amarnath

    Energy Professional (Masters of Renewable & Future Energy Ca

    Michael was my tutor at university in my first year of study. During this time, he was influential in helping myself and students understand the wider applications of engineering solutions and to think broadly. He also served as a mentor, extending and enriching my experiences within the field of engineering. I am pleased to recommend a person like Michael who is honest and conducts himself with integrity at all times for any opportunities in the future knowing he will be a valuable asset.
  • Ken Donaldson
