Febriany Eddy officially becomes CEO of PT Vale Indonesia Tbk

Febriany Eddy officially became Chief Executive Officer (CEO) & President Director of PT Vale Indonesia Tbk (PT Vale) after her appointment was approved by e-AGMS, 29 April 2021. Febriany replaces Nico Kanter who has been CEO of PT Vale since 2011, after going through a very well internal succession process.

I am very grateful to have received the mandate to be able to lead PT Vale for 9 years. It is more comfortable and grateful because my successor, Febriany Eddy, is a very capable and great person. With my current position on the Board of Commissioners, I hope that I and the other commissioners may help PT Vale, under the leadership of Febriany, to realize the Company’s plans and targets,

Nico Kanter

Febriany has been with Vale for almost 14 years, where 11 years of them were at PT Vale. She has nearly 22 years of international work experience in the financial and mining industry. She worked for PricewaterhouseCoopers in Jakarta and in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, for total of seven years. During that time, she was involved in various types of financial due diligence works and international projects.

She started her career with PT Vale as Manager of Capital Project Controls and Financial Evaluation. After three years in the role, she was assigned to the regional office of Vale Base Metals Asia Pacific and Africa based in Brisbane, Australia for 2.5 years. There, holder of Bachelor of Economics from the University of Indonesia and MBA from UCLA Anderson School of Management and National University of Singapore, was responsible for overseeing performance of Vale Base Metals units in Indonesia, Japan, China, Taiwan and Africa. Upon her return to Indonesia, she assumed responsibility as CFO of PT Vale from 2013 to 2018 and was Deputy CEO for two years, before finally being appointed as CEO.

In my 14 years working for Vale, I am grateful to have had opportunities to live and work in different countries in a number of interesting roles. Continuing in this new role, I look forward to realising our Purpose driven growth and business plan,

She added that nickel is a critical material in the global vision of decarbonization. “Despite the incredible challenges, we are committed to delivering a carbon neutral process of producing nickel by 2050. I am excited to work together with our talented and hard-working team in Indonesia and globally. With the right people and culture of ‘learning together’ we will deliver our ambition to be a great company admired by society,” said Febriany, who is included in the Top 25 Most Influential Women in Treasury in Asia Pacific (2015).

Being a CEO in a company engaged in an industry with such a masculine image did not dampen Febriany’s spirit. She believes that diversity will bring change in a positive direction. Difference makes all the difference. This is in line with Vale’s target to be a “home” for all talents by embracing diversity, creating equality and building inclusiveness. Febriany, who was chosen as Asia's Top Sustainability Superwomen 2019, is also active in voicing issues of diversity, inclusion, and sustainability, through various forums, such as Women in Mining & Energy (WIME), Indonesia Business Coalition for Women Empowerment (IBCWE), and currently serves as Vice Chairman of the Indonesia Business Council for Sustainable Development (IBCSD).
