The Weir Group announced that after 43 years of service, Ricardo Garib will retire as president of Weir Minerals, effective December 31. He will be succeeded by Andrew Neilson, who is currently president of Weir ESCO.
Details of Neilson’s successor are pending.
“I’d like to pay tribute to Ricardo Garib for his outstanding contribution to our company and the mining industry over many years,” CEO Jon Stanton said. “His absolute focus on safety and unwavering dedication to serving our customers has been second to none.”
Since joining Weir in 2010, Neilson has held various positions including taking on the role of chief integration officer to lead the integration of ESCO into Weir. He has been Weir ESCO president since July 2020.
“I am delighted that Andrew Neilson will succeed Ricardo. Andrew knows Minerals inside out and has a wealth of experience from across our business. With his strong track record of execution and delivery, I am sure he will lead Minerals to new heights and I look forward to working with him in his new role,” Stanton said.
