Chief People Officer
James joined our Executive Committee as Chief People Officer in April 2021.
Prior to this, James was at Egon Zehnder for 21 years. He led a range of global practices and specialised in coaching, talent management and leadership development. Prior to this, he worked in equity research after a career as an air force pilot.
James has been supporting our culture evolution, from building a new leadership programme, to paving the way to a more inclusive work environment and helping create our new values. His vision is to help unlock more of our potential and to inspire even more of our colleagues to feel the pride in Rio Tinto that many already do.
