PERTH (miningweekly.com) – Diversified major Rio Tinto has appointed Jérôme Pécresse as its aluminium CEO, succeeding Ivan Vella.

Pécresse, who was until recently president and CEO of General Electric (GE) Renewable Energy, will join Rio on October 23.

Pécresse is a French citizen with over 30 years of business experience, including senior leadership roles in global companies in the mining and energy fields. He joined GE in 2015, when GE completed its acquisition of Alstom’s energy activities, as president and CEO of GE Renewable Energy.

Before joining Alstom in 2011, Pécresse spent 13 years in the mining and metals processing industry at Paris-based global industrial minerals producer Imerys in various roles and ultimately as chief operating officer.

“Pécresse brings a wealth of experience across renewable energy, mining, business development and strategy, ideal for shaping our industry leading aluminium business for a low carbon future. I look forward to welcoming Pécresse to Rio Tinto and to the diverse contribution I know he will make to our business at this critical moment for our industry,” said Rio CEO Jakob Stausholm.
