Wanblad took on the role of strategy and business development director in 2016. He was CEO of Anglo's base metals unit between 2013 to 2019.

Cutifani meanwhile, was appointed as CEO of the company back in 2013. Sky News noted Cutifani does not plan on stepping down from the post until the Quellaveco copper mine project in Peru has been completed. This is expected to happen next spring.
