Global mining company Orica has appointed Kim Kerr as its new chief financial officer, effective 11 October. 

Kerr assumes the position from Christopher Davis, who is slated to leave the company on 30 December to support an orderly transition. 

Kerr joined Orica in September this year as vice president for group finance. 

Kerr holds a bachelor’s degree in business from the Queensland University of Technology. 

She spent over 16 years in several senior executive roles at Newcrest Mining, including finance, treasury, investor relations, and commercial functions and recently served as an acting chief financial officer. 

Orica is slated to present its 2022 financial results on 9 November with the full-year Earnings Before Interest and Tax expected to be slightly ahead of market expectations.
