Mark Cutifani: Leaving his mark at Anglo
How Anglo American CEO Mark Cutifani got SA’s most iconic mining firm back on its feet
On the day that the first case of Covid-19 in SA is confirmed, Anglo American CEO Mark Cutifani is in town, and desperately trying to keep a safe distance. At the Anglo American precinct in the Joburg CBD, which looks more Masonic lodge than corporate HQ, Cutifani playfully holds his foot out, offering a "Wuhan shake".
It is still hours before the SA case is confirmed, and locals have yet to become hyperconscious about physical contact. Not Cutifani. As the head of a multinational mining company, he’s more aware than most. To steer the ship of Anglo American, a global perspective is critical — as is regular travel across no fewer than six continents.
