The Board of Anglo American Platinum Limited announced the appointment of Natascha Viljoen as CEO, with effect from 16 April 2020, following Chris Griffith’s decision to step down after more than seven years to pursue other career opportunities. Ms Viljoen is currently Group Head of Processing for Anglo American, a role she has held since 2014. In that role, she has led a trusted global team that has unlocked value across Anglo American’s processing operations safely and with a long term perspective, recognising their critical commercial place in the mining value chain.

Prior to joining Anglo American, Natascha was Executive Vice President of Processing at Lonmin while also leading the company’s sustainability, employee health, environmental and stakeholder relations work at various times. Natascha began her career as an engineer at Iscor and, amongst other roles, took on leadership positions at AngloGold and was General Manager of BHP’s Klipspruit Colliery before joining Lonmin in 2008.

Natascha Viljoen will join Anglo American Platinum on 1 April 2020 and the Group Management Committee of Anglo American plc on 16 April 2020.
