One of the familiar public faces of Sudbury’s biggest mining company is off to a new job.

Angie Robson, the long-time director of corporate affairs and sustainability for Vale’s North Atlantic operations and Asian refineries, has left the company.

“After 15 incredible years, I’ve made the very difficult decision to move on from Vale and take on a new adventure,” said Robson on her LinkedIn account.

“It’s been a true privilege to work alongside an amazing group of professionals over the years, and in many ways moving on feels a lot like leaving home. I will always be grateful to the company for the faith and confidence placed in me over the years, and to my own team who I credit with helping me to shine."

Her job, and all that it entails, was posted March 25.

“It’s a great role with so much opportunity, and I promise you the team is second to none.”

Robson indicated she has already found a landing spot.

“Stay tuned for an announcement on where I’m headed next.”

A past recipient of the Top Forty Under 40 Award in Sudbury, Robson joined then-INCO in October 2005 as a corporate affairs specialist handling communications, government and community relations.

Prior to that, she was communications director for former Energy Minister Dwight Duncan in the early 2000s, and served in marketing, communication and special project roles for Tarion Warranty Corp, Navigator, Hill + Knowlton Strategies, and the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto.

She holds a bachelor of arts degree from Laurentian University and an MBA from McGill University.
