BHP makes changes to leadership team


Date: Mar 1, 2019

Diversified miner BHP has announced a number of management changes, reflecting its simplified portfolio.

Geraldine Slattery will replace Steve Pastor as president of the petroleum operations, while Vandita Pant will take over from Arnoud Balhuizen as chief commercial officer.

Following the completion of BHP’s sale of its US onshore assets, Pastor will leave the company.

Slattery will now lead the petroleum business, which includes oil and gas interests and development and exploration programmes in the US, Australia, Mexico and Canada, starting on March 18.

She has been with BHP for 25 years and has led a number of teams across the petroleum business.

Pant for her part, will assume the role as chief commercial officer from July 1, with Balhuizen expected to return to the Netherlands.

Pant was previously employed as group treasurer for BHP and head of Europe, and played a critical role in executing the company’s capital allocation framework, strengthening the company’s balance sheet and leading to the $10.4-billion return to shareholders from the sale of the US onshore assets.
