Rio Tinto board changes

Rod Eddington and Yves Fortier have announced they will be retiring from the board of Rio Tinto.
Both non executive directors will be leaving the board at the conclusion of the 2011 annual general meetings on 5 May.
Andrew Gould, a senior independent director at Rio, will also be leaving the company at the conclusion of the 2012 meetings.
The miner is currently aiming to fill these empty positions, and would look to the appointment of another Australia director following Sir Rod Eddington’s retirement.
