As its chief financial officer, Brian Kruger was a leading player in the demerger of BHP Steel Ltd. from its parent BHP Billiton Ltd. which constituted one of the largest initial public offerings in Australia in 2004. The demerger gave the steel company its own identity and its own analyst following. Along with the demerger came the challenge of creating a larger finance team to run a company no longer drawing services from its parent company. Kruger has helped hire and shape a full support team.
