Nutrien announces new Board Chair
Nutrien Ltd. (Nutrien) today announced that Jochen Tilk will be stepping down as Executive Chair and as a director of the Company, effective September 30, 2018 to pursue other opportunities. Jochen's key objectives are well on track and he and the Board have decided that it would be the right time to hand over the leadership of the Board to an independent Chair. Effective September 30, Nutrien's current Lead Director, Derek Pannell will assume the role of non-executive Chair of the Board through the 2019 AGM. It is expected that the plans regarding the new independent Chair, post the 2019 AGM, will be contained in the proxy circular for that meeting.
The Board and management of the Corporation wish to thank Jochen for his strong and effective leadership in the formation of Nutrien and helping guide the new company through the complex integration activities, the rapid achievement of synergies and its corporate strategy.
