BHP exec to leave as 'transformation' efforts shift to asset, function leaders

The internal shakeup at mining giant BHP Group continued, with the announcement that Chief Transformation Officer Jonathan Price will depart the company.

The company said Dec. 13 that Price will return to the U.K. with his family after overseeing the transition of his team into the assets and functional areas over the first half of 2020.

"Transformation will now become a core accountability of every leader within BHP and will be accelerated through their delivery plans to realise the full value of this opportunity," CEO Andrew Mackenzie said.

The announcement came shortly after Chief Technology Officer Diane Jurgens decided to step down in early 2020.

Former Newmont Goldcorp Corp. CEO Gary Goldberg also recently joined BHP's board as an independent nonexecutive director, effective Feb. 1, 2020.

The personnel changes came ahead of a new leadership under incoming CEO Mike Henry, who will take over from Andrew Mackenzie on Jan. 1, 2020.
