Deshnee Naidoo

Vale announced Deshnee Naidoo has taken over as executive vice president of its base metals division. Naidoo replaced Mark Travers, who had served in the position on an interim basis since 2019, following the resignation of CEO Fábio Schvartsman and three of the company’s senior executives. The resignations were prompted by the collapse of a tailings dam in Brazil that killed 186 people.
