BHP Billiton unveils board shake-up as two directors depart

The world’s largest mining company is to shake up its board after two directors announced they would be stepping down – one after just six months. The FTSE 100 group also announced that former Shell executive Malcolm Brinded would be stepping down after three years on the board as a non-executive. Mr Brinded would not be seeking re-election “given his involvement in ongoing legal proceedings in Italy relating to his prior employment with Shell”, Mr Nasser said. Shell, where Mr Brinded was a director for 10 years until 2012, is facing an investigation over alleged corrupt payments to acquire an oilfield off the shore of Nigeria in 2011.

    To Ron Birt

    Yes dear Malcolm could be a real charmer when inclined but so they say could Uncle Joe Stalin.

    I truly find this unbelievable, I had the very good fortune to work for Malcolm in Oman, a more caring and compassionate boss you couldn’t hope to work for. He was an absolute gem of a man, I recall many years later at a show put on by She’ll personnel, Malcolm not only remembered me, a mere minion, but went out of his way to say hello to both male and my Wife
