Anglo American plc (“Anglo American”) announces the appointment of Helena Nonka as Group Director of Strategy and Business Development and as a member of the Group Management Committee, effective 1 October 2022. Helena Nonka is currently Executive Vice President of Corporate Development for Norsk Hydro, the global aluminium and renewable energy company, and brings more than 20 years of international experience primarily in the natural resources industry.

Duncan Wanblad, Chief Executive of Anglo American, welcomed the appointment: “Helena Nonka’s deep understanding of the mining industry, our value chains and end markets will be invaluable as we continue to grow the value of our business. The mining industry plays such a pivotal role in enabling how we all live our lives and the need to decarbonise the global economy, while our ability to fulfil those promises is led by the strategic choices we make.”

Helena Nonka commented: “I look forward to working closely with Duncan Wanblad and his executive team to shape the evolution of Anglo American for the decades ahead. It is a particularly exciting time to be in the mining industry, not least as the green energy transition requires such significant additional volumes of responsibly produced metals and minerals. I’m very excited by the opportunity to lead this work to ensure that Anglo American leverages its unique commercial and technical capabilities and partnerships to innovate, grow and create sustainable value for all stakeholders.”
