  • Featured Employee: Hernan V. Caballes
    Location: Philippines
    Job Title: General Manager - Philippines
    I became a part of the Major Drilling team in September 2011, as a result of the Bradley Drilling acquisition.  I am the General Manager for the Philippines.  I have spent much of my life deeply involved in the Philippine exploration and mining industries, and it all started right after my graduation from the Mining Engineering course in 1980.
    Working for Major Drilling has shown me that I am a key player on a global team.  Upon joining Major Drilling I immediately felt at home, and realized that you can depend on the entire team, each of  whom are willing to extend help and support if needed.  I know that I am working for a very professional drilling service contractor that offers the best training for its employees, is focused on safety, and shows genuine concern for the environment.  I know that the client is assured of the best drilling services the industry can offer.
    As for spare time, I don't have much, as my three grand kids get 100% of whatever is left.  I also spend the bit of time I have in the firing range where I practice shooting with my gun collection.
  • Featured Employee: Normand Bryar
    Location: Argentina
    Job Title: Branch Manager - Argentina
    I started out with Major Drilling in 1993 as a driller’s helper, and have just recently become the Branch Manager in Argentina.
    Major Drilling is a company that recognizes and rewards honest and hard working employees with growth opportunities.  They have always supported my professional goals.
    Working in South America has offered me the opportunity to realize new outdoor passions like fishing in the Bolivian Amazon, and becoming a part-time rancher.  
  • Featured Employee: David Boucher
    Location: Mexico
    Job Title: Branch Manager - Mexico
    I started working for Major Drilling in Mexico in January1995; and I have been the Branch Manager since January 2012.  The thing I like best about working for Major Drilling is the people, the pride and effort that everyone puts forward to make our company the best!  We all work together as a team.
    The best thing that has ever happened to me is getting to see the world and all the amazing people in it, and waking up each day on the right side of the grass.
  • Featured Employee: Chantal Melanson
    Location: Moncton, New Brunswick
    Job Title: Executive Assistant
    My name is Chantal Melanson and I have been with Major Drilling Group International Inc. for almost 16 years.  I work out of the Moncton office and I hold the position of Executive Assistant, working the past 13 years for our current President, Francis McGuire.
     What I like most about working at Major is without a doubt – THE PEOPLE.  The Company worldwide is filled with such wonderful people.  I am very fortunate to have made some great friends – not only here in Moncton, but around the world!  Not many people have that opportunity, and for that, I am truly grateful.  I am very proud to be a part of this team - Go Major!!
     What do I do on my spare time?  I mostly follow my kids sporting events and whatever other activities they are involved in.  I also love music and books.

    Location: Mongolia
    Job Title: Regional General Manager for Asia
    I am the Regional General Manager for Asia, living in Mongolia.  I am responsible for Mongolia, the Philippines and business development in Asia.
    I started working with Pontil PTY LTY in 1989, which was purchased by Major Drilling in 1996, so I have been with the company 24 years this October.  I have had opportunities to travel all over the world, meet interesting people and move up within the company from the position of fitter/drill helper to senior manager.  I have never considered what I do a job, it has always been a lifestyle for me.
    The one thing that might surprise people about me is that I enjoy cooking!
