Rio Tinto recently announced that Chris Lynch has joined the boards of Rio Tinto plc and Rio Tinto Ltd. as a non-executive director.

Prior to this, he spent 20 years with Alcoa Inc. He is currently CEO of Transurban Group and a commissioner of the Australian Football League.

“I am delighted that Chris Lynch is joining the boards,” said Jan du Plessis, chairman. “He has nearly 30 years of tremendous experience acquired in the mining and metals industry.
