Rio Tinto recently announced it has appointed Chris Lynch to the position of chief financial officer. He will succeed Guy Elliott, effective April 18. Lynch joined the Rio Tinto boards as a non-executive director in September 2011. He remains on the boards and became an executive director and member of the Executive Committee as chief financial officer-elect on March 1. He will be based in London.

In July 2012, Elliott announced his intention to retire from Rio Tinto after more than 30 years with the company. He will remain on the boards until the end of the year.

“Chris Lynch is an extremely high-caliber addition to our executive team with a strong pedigree of board, mining and financial experience, including at BHP Billiton, where he was chief financial officer and ran the Carbon Steel Materials division, and 20 years at Alcoa,” said Sam Walsh, chief executive. “We are fortunate to have appointed someone so well qualified to take over from Guy, and I am grateful to Guy for remaining on the boards until the end of the year.”
