Anglo American appoints Ian Tyler to its Board as a non-executive director

Anglo American plc ("Anglo American") announces that Ian Tyler will join the Board as a non-executive director and a member of the Audit and Remuneration committees, with effect from 1 January 2022.


Ian Tyler has served as Chairman of Vistry Group PLC since 2013. He has also served as a non-executive director of BAE Systems plc since 2013 and will step down from that role in May 2022.


Anne Stevens and Dr Byron Grote, non-executive directors of Anglo American, will step down from the Board at Anglo American's next Annual General Meeting (AGM) in April 2022, having both served for nine years.


Ian Tyler will succeed Anne Stevens as Chair of the Remuneration Committee, and Hilary Maxson, non-executive director and member of the Audit Committee since June 2021, will succeed Byron Grote as Chair of the Audit Committee. Both committee appointments will take effect from Anglo American's AGM in April 2022.


Commenting on the changes to the Board, Stuart Chambers, Chairman of Anglo American, said: "Ian Tyler brings a wealth of boardroom experience spanning a number of industrial sectors, including as chair of remuneration and audit committees. Combined with his distinguished executive career at Balfour Beatty, ultimately as chief executive, Ian is well placed to bring additional insights to our Board discussions."


"On behalf of the Board, we thank Anne Stevens and Byron Grote for their extensive contributions to the Board and the committees they chaired and on which they served. Byron's career-long experience in the natural resources sector and Anne's global executive and board experience across the industrial and manufacturing sectors have served them well in their roles on our board which they have carried out to the highest standard and with unquestionable dedication."
