Rio Tinto recently announced it has appointed Greg Lilleyman as the new group executive for Technology & Innovation (T&I), following the retirement of Preston Chiaro at the end of March 2014. Lilleyman's appointment is effective January 1, 2014.

“Under Preston’s leadership, our industry-leading T&I group has developed and delivered numerous innovations, including the growth of our ground-breaking Mine of the FutureTM program, which have created sustainable value for our shareholders by ensuring Rio Tinto has a competitive advantage in the way we operate,” said Sam Walsh, chief executive.

Lilleyman, a mining engineer by profession, has been with Rio Tinto for 23 years, mainly with the iron ore business in Australia and Canada. As president of Pilbara Operations, he oversaw the successful development of numerous technology-driven improvements, including autonomous trucks, drills and trains. Since becoming head of Productivity Improvement in T&I in August 2013, Greg has led all aspects of productivity improvement across the group.
