Rio Tinto recently announced that Chris Lynch has joined the boards of Rio Tinto plc and Rio Tinto Ltd. as a non-executive director. Lynch has reportedly had an extensive career in the mining and metals industry, including seven years at BHP Billiton, where he was CFO and then executive director and group president of Carbon Steel Materials. 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. In addition, Chris is a leading figure in the Australian business community, and his appointment reflects the significance of Australia to Rio Tinto’s global operations. He brings with him considerable international experience gained from other global businesses, from which we also stand to benefit.”
