DENVER – Newmont Goldcorp Corporation has appointed Dan Janney to continue improving the company’s safety and operational performance in North America. Most recently, Janney was serving as Newmont Goldcorp’s group executive supporting the Full Potential continuous improvement work in the region. He has now assumed the full accountabilities of the regional senior vice president role in North America, effective Oct. 21.

“Dan’s appointment is intended to accelerate operational and efficiency improvements at our North American sites, while continuing to enhance the region’s safety performance,” said Tom Palmer, president and chief executive officer. “Dan brings 27 years of global mining operations experience, and he has successfully led teams to deliver step change improvements in safety, efficiency and productivity. His background and expertise are well suited to lead our work to safely improve costs and productivity and extend mine lives in our North America region. I’d also like to thank Todd White for his service to Newmont Goldcorp.”
