Calmer times at BHP?

Scottish Daily Mail - - City & Finance -

BHP’S in­com­ing boss has pledged to fo­cus on mak­ing the miner run more smoothly when he takes over in Jan­uary.

The firm has tapped insider Mike Henry, who has been at BHP for 16 years and headed its Aus­tralian arm for three, to take over from out­go­ing chief ex­ec­u­tive An­drew Macken­zie. Macken­zie will step down af­ter al­most seven years at the helm of the group on De­cem­ber 31. Henry’s plans im­ply the firm will con­tinue Macken­zie’s fo­cus on ef­fi­ciency.

The Cana­dian-born 53year-old said: ‘I’ve got the lux­ury here un­like some chief ex­ec­u­tive at be­ing able to take up the po­si­tion at a time when the company is per­form­ing very well and the foun­da­tion is strong.’
