BHP Board changes


BHP today announced that Susan Kilsby and Anita Frew will retire after the BHP Group Limited and BHP Group Plc 2021 Annual General Meetings.


As previously announced, Ms Kilsby was appointed Chair of the Board of Fortune Brands Home & Security, Inc in January 2021 and had confirmed her intention to retire as a BHP Director during 2021 and no later than the 2021 Annual General Meetings. Ms Frew joined the Board of Rolls Royce Holdings plc as a Non-executive Director in July 2021 and is Chair with effect from 1 October 2021. Both Directors will step down from the BHP Board given the time commitments associated with their respective chair appointments.


In light of these retirements and the importance of continuity on the Board during the ongoing renewal process, the Board has requested that Malcolm Broomhead seek re-election at the 2021 Annual General Meetings for a further year. The Board supports Malcolm's re-election given his extensive knowledge of BHP and the mining and resources sector, and the proposed corporate transactions that the Group is undertaking at this time.  Malcolm has informed the Board that he will not remain on the Board after the 2022 Annual General Meetings.


As previously announced, Michelle Hinchliffe will also join the BHP Board from 1 March 2022.


BHP Chair, Mr MacKenzie said "The BHP Board congratulates Susan and Anita on both of these significant appointments. I would like to thank them both for their contribution to BHP over many years and their commitment to our ongoing success. We wish both Susan and Anita all the best for the future."
