Bumi hunts for a new CFO

Marion Dakers
BUMI yesterday said it was looking for a new chief financial officer as its incumbent steps down to focus on its Berau Coal operations in Indonesia.

Chief executive Nick von Schirnding said yesterday Scott Merrillees’ planned departure from the role at the end of June “is consistent with our commitment to restructure the board”.

Bumi, which in February secured shareholder backing to split the firm from the Bakrie Group and PT Bumi Resources Tbk, is restructuring its board while the changes take place.
