Lomin’s CFO Simon Scott Takes Over as CEO
Lonmin has appointed its chief financial officer (CFO) Simon Scott as acting chief executive officer (CEO) of the platinum mining company, as it deals with the fallout of a strike at its South African mine. Scott will take over from CEO Ian Farmer, who has commenced a course of medical treatment. The company said in a statement that “it will be some months before he is able to return to work full-time.”
Scott will be supported by the existing team of executive vice presidents (EVPs) and the executive committee, which will continue to include both chairperson Roger Phillimore and chief operating officer (COO) Mahomed Seedat.
