Goodmanson to Retire from Rio Tinto Board
Richard Goodmanson, a non-executive director of Rio Tinto who joined the board in December 2004, will be retiring from the board this year. Goodmanson reportedly will not seek re-election as a non-executive director of Rio Tinto plc and Rio Tinto Ldt. and will retire from the board at the conclusion of the Rio Tinto Ldt. annual general meeting in Brisbane on May 5, 2016. Megan Clark will be appointed as chairman of the Sustainability Committee upon Richard Goodmanson’s retirement, and will also become a member of the Remuneration Committee, effective May 1, 2016.
“I am very grateful to Richard for his considerable contribution to Rio Tinto over many years,” said Jan du Plessis, chairman. “He provided tremendous support during his tenure, notably as chairman of the Sustainability Committee. I wish him well for the future.”
