BHP (NYSE: BHP) announced on Thursday that Don Lindsay, the former CEO of Teck Resources, will join its board as a non-executive director.

The miner also announced the retirement of Ian Cockerill as a non-executive director, effective April 4, 2024. Cockerill was appointed CEO of Endeavour Mining in January 2024.

Lindsay led Teck Resources for 17 years. After his retirement in 2022, he assumed the role of chairman at Manulife Financial Corporation, Canada’s largest insurance company.

“Don brings a strong focus on global resource development, growth and value creation, as well as community health, safety and education. We look forward to welcoming Don to the board on May 1, 2024,” BHP’s chair, Ken MacKenzie said in a release.

The news of Lindsay’s appointment comes shortly after the announcement of Ross McEwan as a non-executive director, effective April 3.
