CEO Melissa Larsson, co-CEO of Larsson-Baxter Mining.
CEO of Larsson-Baxter Mining.
Melissa Larsson is currently co-CEO of Larsson-Baxter Mining and heiress to Larsson Mechworks which merged with Baxter Affiliated Mining (B.A.M.) At the time Baxter Affiliated Mining was run by CEO Brett Baxter who is now the other CEO of Larsson-Baxter Mining.
Larsson Mechworks was an old and established industrialmech producing company which dabbled in other heavy equipment such as mining equipment. As the heiress to the company Melissa Larsson saw that her company needed to become more competitive, and formed the plans for the corporate merger with her primary objective to lower the overheads for her factories.
It has been suggested that Brett Baxter and his corporate philosophy of useful and involved management is the reason Melissa Larsson learned to pilot an industrialmech, however Melissa learned to pilot industrialmechs as a child and long before she learned to drive a car. It was simply a part of the family business and family life.
Once Argyre was established Baxter Affiliated Mining merged with Larsson Mechworks. Baxter Affiliated Mining provided a number of active mining operations and veteran staff, while Larsson Mechworks were a major producer of industrialmechs including the vital Dig Lord Miningmech. The influx of mining equipment and transport equipment to affiliates together with the affiliated mining operations was the basis for the success of Larsson-Baxter Mining. The equipment aided the affiliate mines and their harvest of ores slashed the overheads of the factories in Perdix. A rapid expansion ensued, with Brett Baxter headhunting highly profitable operations and those mining strategic ores needed for the mechworks.
