Keep up with the latest executive movements across the mining sector, featuring Fortescue, Newmont and Ramelius Resources.


There has been significant movement in Fortescue’s executive team. Chief financial officer (CFO) of Fortescue Energy Deborah Caudle has exited the company after just five months on the job.

The company thanks Caudle for her contribution, and announced that metals CFO Apple Paget would assume her responsibilities until a replacement can be found.

Caudle’s exit was preceded by former Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull stepping down as director at Fortescue Future Industries in early January.

Fortescue’s director of corporate communications Fiona Sugden also stepped down in January.


Ramelius Resources has appointed Darren Millman as its CFO from May this year.

Millman has over 25 years of experience in financial management, capital markets and the mining industry. He previously held the role of treasurer at Centerra Gold, working his way up to CFO in just over a year.

Before joining Centerra, Millman was general manager finance at Ivanhoe Australia, where he gained experience with listing Ivanhoe on both the ASX and TSX (Toronto Stock Exchange).


Newmont has appointed Peter Wexler as its new chief legal officer who will lead the company’s legal, compliance and regulatory affairs globally.

“Peter’s appointment further strengthens Newmont’s executive leadership team,” Newmont president and chief executive officer Tom Palmer said. 

“Peter brings decades of world-class legal and risk management experience at global organisations, which will be invaluable as Newmont continues to grow, building on its position as the world’s leading gold mining company and robust copper producer. We are excited to welcome him to Newmont.”
