He will assume leadership of Peñasquito in the first quarter of 2020 and report to Dan Janney, Newmont’s regional senior vice president for North America. Jen Bennett, currently serving as vice president of operations for Newmont’s South America region, will succeed Cooper to lead Boddington and build on the operation’s success through a continued focus on safe, efficient production, and project delivery. Peñasquito current General Manager Brian Berney will focus on government and community engagement in Mexico while supporting an effective transition with Cooper.
