MMG COO resigns

MMG COO resigns

MMG Limited (MMG) has announced the resignation of its Chief Operating Officer (COO), Marcelo Bastos. He is going to part ways with MMG in August 2017.

Bastos was appointed COO in 2011, making him responsible for all MMG’s operating assets. He was also responsible for marketing since 2015.

MMG CEO, Jerry Jiao, says the board, management and all at MMG acknowledge Marcelo’s significant contribution to MMG over the past six years. “Marcelo has helped drive MMG’s expansion from Australia and Asia into a global mining company. He played a key role in the acquisition, integration and ramp up of Kinsevere in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Las Bambas in Peru, and in shaping MMG to be recognised as a world-class operator,” he says.

A succession process will now commence and Mr Bastos will support the operations team during a transition period. Bastos explained that he felt privileged to have been a part of the successful MMG story. “This is a world-class mining company and I know MMG has a great future ahead. I am thankful for the many opportunities I have had during my 30-year career and for the strong support of my family,” he says.
