Rio Tinto has added a new role to its executive committee as it considers the next phase of its transformation to reinforce the company’s commitment to strategy, technology and climate change in a new era. Peter Toth will become Group executive, Strategy and Development with a focus on leading Rio Tinto’s transformation efforts around portfolio, climate change, and closure, working in partnership with the product group and commercial teams. He will also assume responsibility for Rio Tinto Exploration and Ventures.

Stephen McIntosh, Group executive of Growth & Innovation and Health, Safety & Environment (HSE) has decided to retire after more than 30 years with Rio Tinto, leaving the company on 30 September. Stephen joined Rio Tinto as an exploration geophysicist in 1987 and led the exploration team from 2011 to 2016, joining the executive committee in 2016. During his time with the company, Stephen built strong exploration, project and technology capabilities.

With Stephen’s departure, Mark Davies will assume the role of Group executive, Safety, Technical and Projects, with a focus on maintaining the company’s longstanding commitment to safety, health and environment, while further building on the company’s efforts in technology and project delivery to support operational excellence in the years ahead.

Both Peter and Mark will join the Rio Tinto executive committee on 1 October, reporting to chief executive, J-S Jacques.
