RAPAPORT... De Beers is moving from its iconic premises at 17 Charterhouse Street as part of an ongoing consolidation at its parent Anglo American, the company’s spokesperson confirmed to Rapaport News.

Staff will relocate to Anglo American’s Carlton House Terrace office within the next year, said David Johnson, the head of midstream communications at De Beers. Anglo American announced in December it plans to co-locate with De Beers in 2017 and was considering Charterhouse as its new headquarters. Instead, Johnson confirmed, it has now been decided De Beers will move to Anglo American’s premises.

The decision comes amid a cost cutting Anglo American announced last year that will reduce its employee base from 135,000 to less than 50,000 worldwide. The group is consolidating its portfolio of businesses from six to three, comprising the De Beers diamond unit, industrial metals and bulk commodities.
