Rio Tinto has declined to comment on speculation that Mick Davis could succeed chairman Jan du Plessis. Davis was the CEO of Xstrata until it merged with Glencore, and he is still a director of X2 Resources. Rio Tinto director Sam Laidlaw is also regarded as a contender to replace du Plessis, who advised earlier in 2017 that he intends to step down. Peter O’Connor of Shaw & Partners says Rio Tinto might want to consider appointing a chairman with strong corporate governance credentials given the recent series of scandals involving the resources group.
