BHP Billiton unveils board changes

23 August 2017 08:20

BHP Billiton chairman Jac Nasser has announced the appointment of Terry Bowen and John Mogford as independent non-executive directors, effective 1 October. Bowen has over 25 years of strategic, operational and financial experience across a range of sectors.

He has been the finance director of Wesfarmers for the past eight years. He will retire from that position towards the end of this calendar year.

Mogford has over 40 years of experience in the oil and gas sector, including 33 years at BP Plc in technical, operational and leadership roles.

Nasser also announced today that, given his involvement in ongoing legal proceedings in Italy relating to his prior employment with Shell, Malcolm Brinded had decided not to stand for re-election as a non-executive director with 18 October to be his final day on the board of BHP.

Nasser said that in addition, due to concerns expressed by some investors, Grant King had decided that he would not stand for election at the 2017 annual general meetings of BHP, and would retire from the board on 31 August.

At 8:20am: (LON:BLT) BHP Billiton PLC share price was -3p at 1391.5p
