Our history
 
We started the Optiro business in 2008.
 
The team that started the business was the management team of one of the better known international mining consultancy practices.  The six people that started the business had individually been working in mining for periods between 20 and 40 years.
 
Our decision to start the business was because we wanted to start a consultancy that had a fresh approach.  One that was a boutique practice that offered high value add to clients through better aligning our technical expertise to their business objectives.  We had seen in the boom leading to the market crash in 2008 that companies were being founded on a lot of waste.  Mining assets were overpriced at purchase and the operational cost structures were eating into margins at an alarming rate.  We felt there was room for an advisory firm that had efficiency and optimisation focus that would lead to better outcomes and higher value for our clients.  Coupled with this we felt there needed to be more emphasis on de-risking mining investment decisions.  Making better decisions and being more certain about them by understanding the risk also aligned to the optimisation theme.  It’s not all we do but it is at our core.
 
With an idea we went on the search for a name.  We wanted our name to be simple, short, unique and easy to say (phonetic).  We often get asked how the name Optiro came about. Well the answer to this is simple.  Our business is about OPTImising ResOurces.  That was the genesis of the name.  The name is unique; in fact we own the trademark to it.  We think it’s easy to say and hope one day it’s so well-known everyone is used to it.
 
And what about that ‘hat’ on the O?  There is a story behind that too.  As said earlier, the business had a risk focus and our mantra was to reduce uncertainty by making decisions that were more accurate.  How better to display that than the concept of the normal distribution curve we thought.  Our business is about getting you to the median at the peak of the curve, increasing confidence and reducing deviation, so we drew the Optiro name under a standard deviation curve.  The crude logo concepts shown below are some of the original sketches.  As you can see this design was so ugly, it was dropped! However the principle remained with the simplest of distributions ‘the triangular distribution curve’ now residing atop the Optiro ‘O’.
