Fortescue Metals announced 30 November that Elizabeth Gaines is to replace outgoing CEO Nev Power, making Gaines the first female to head up a major Australian mining firm. Greg Lilleyman, who had been seen as a contender with Gaines to replace Power, has been promoted from director of operations to chief operating officer, while Julie Shuttleworth, currently in charge of Fortescue’s Solomon operations, has been appointed to the newly created role of deputy CEO. It is believed it makes Fortescue the first ASX 200 company to have females occupying the top two executive roles.
