Rio Tinto recently announced that John Varley will join the boards of Rio Tinto plc and Rio Tinto Ltd. as a non-executive director on September 1. Varley’s career includes 28 years at global financial services provider Barclays, where he spent six years as chief executive. He currently holds non-executive directorships at AstraZeneca plc and BlackRock Inc. In addition, he remains a senior advisor to Barclays and is a member of the International Advisory Panel of the Monetary Authority of Singapore.

“John Varley is a high-caliber addition to the boards,” said Jan du Plessis, chairman. “Quite apart from John’s broad-ranging skills and experience in banking and financial markets, his all-round reputation and business judgment will enhance the boards’ existing strengths.”
