Rio Tinto recently announced the appointment of David Peever as managing director, Australia, following the resignation of Stephen Creese from that role. Peever has had a career of more than 20 years with Rio Tinto, most recently as managing director of Rio Tinto Marine. Previous postings have included financial, human resources, operational, and sales and marketing roles with Pacific Coal, Dampier Salt, and Rio Tinto Borax.

Peever will retain his current role at Marine, based in Melbourne, and will report directly to Sam Walsh, who has recently assumed overall responsibility for Australian interests in addition to his role as chief executive, iron ore. “It is quite fitting that David’s career with Rio Tinto has been comprehensive, spanning disciplines, product groups and regions,” said Walsh. “This breadth of experience will prove invaluable in his new role.”

As managing director, Australia, Peever will work closely with senior management across the business to protect and advance the interests of Rio Tinto in Australia, occupying a pivotal role with shareholders, governments and other key stakeholders.
