RAPAPORT... Jean-Marc Lieberherr, the managing director of Rio Tinto’s diamonds business, is to leave the company as part of a restructuring of the miner's diamonds and minerals product group.

Lieberherr, who has held the position for two and a half years, will be replaced by Simon Trott, Rio Tinto said in a statement January 18. Lieberherr had been with the company for ten years.

Trott is currently managing director of Rio Tinto’s salt and uranium businesses and will retain these responsibilities. He has more than 18 years’ experience in the mining industry and has led global businesses across different industries. He will continue to report to Alan Davies, chief executive of diamonds and minerals.

“Simon brings a wealth of experience and leadership to the role,” Davies said. “There is no change to Rio Tinto’s commitment to the diamond industry, to our customers and to other industry partners who are instrumental to our current and future success.”
