RAPAPORT... De Beers executive head of human resources Arthur Hewett will retire from the mining company at the end of September after a quarter of a century, it announced.

Hewett (pictured) started his career with De Beers at Kimberley Mines in 1991 and has since held a number of senior positions at the company, it said last week. He has been a member of De Beers’ executive committee for the past four years.

“Arthur has always been passionate about helping people fulfil their potential throughout his 25 years of service to De Beers Group,” said CEO Bruce Cleaver. “He helped us deliver a strong team to Gaborone as we transferred our international sales function from London [in 2013], and has long been a champion for building a more diverse and inclusive organization.”

De Beers will announce Hewett’s successor in the near future, the company added.
