LONDON — Zinc and lead company Nyrstar NV has launched an organizational restructuring, creating three distinct business segments: mining; metals processing; and marketing, sourcing and sales.

Greg McMillan, the current chief operating officer, will leave Nyrstar but will remain in an advisory role for the next three months to "ensure an orderly transition to the new structure," the company said.

The management committee will grow to seven people from five with the addition of Graham Buttenshaw as senior vice president of mining and Bob Katsiouleris as senior vice president of marketing, sourcing and sales

Buttenshaw, currently group general manager of mining in Latin America, will assume responsibility for leading the company’s global mining operations. Katsiouleris, currently group general manager of commercial operations, will lead the company’s raw materials strategy, marketing and sales of finished products and trading.

Roland Junck will remain chief executive officer and Heinz Eigner will remain chief financial officer. Michael Morley will continue as chief corporate and development officer and also will act as senior vice president of metals processing on an interim basis.

Russell Murphy will remain as chief human resources, safety and environment officer at the Zurich-based company.

"We have now reached a point in the strategic journey of the company where it is important for our continued growth that we create direct lines of sight within the management committee for each of our three core-value drivers," Junck said in a statement.
