“I enjoyed working with Gordon Berridge during my transition from Brazil as Anglo American CEO Iron Ore Brazil business to the UK when I joined AML as Group COO. It is always stressful moving countries with new cultures, settling in etc, and Gordon’s expert guidance was of great value. He was very effective in negotiating on my behalf, communicating and collaborating with the senior leadership team, the remuneration and travel teams and their board at AML. Gordon was also very supportive when I joined AML and maintained regular contact and support. I would recommend him to any business as they work through successions and senior hires.” Stephan Weber, Former CEO Anglo American Iron Ore – Brazil & Group COO AML-UK
