PERTH (miningweekly.com) – Diversified miner BHP has announced the retirement of Susan Kilsby and Anita Frew from the company’s board after the company’s next annual general meeting.
Kilsby was appointed chair of the board of Fortune Brands Home & Security, Inc in January 2021 and had confirmed her intention to retire as a BHP director during 2021 and no later than the 2021 annual general meetings.
Frew joined the board of Rolls Royce Holdings plc as a nonexecutive director in July 2021 and is chair with effect from October 1.
Both directors will step down from the BHP board given the time commitments associated with their respective chair appointments.
In light of these retirements and the importance of continuity on the board during the ongoing renewal process, the board has requested that Malcolm Broomhead seek re-election at the 2021 annual general meetings for a further year.
Michelle Hinchliffe will also join the BHP board from March 1.
