John Pollesel will no longer serve as the director of Vale’s Base Metals division for North Atlantic operations. The company is currently undergoing a business-wide review to “position the miner for long-term success and sustainability,” according to a news release.
As part of the process, Vale is building a new organizational model that will install site-specific leads at each of its Canadian operating sites, and they will report directly to the global headquarters for Base Metals in Toronto, the release noted.
As a result, Pollesel’s role is no longer required.
“John Pollesel played a pivotal role in developing our Canadian and U.K. operations, and we wish him the best of luck in his future endeavours,” the company stated.
