Don Lindsay, President and CEO, Teck Resources
Don Lindsay is President and CEO of Teck Resources, Canada’s largest diversified resource company, and a leading producer of copper, zinc, steelmaking coal, and energy.
Mining has traditionally been seen as a tough, gruff and hardnosed industry, but Don himself doesn’t fit any stereotype. In fact, his reputation as one of the most admired CEOs in Canada’s resource sector owes a lot to the care he consistently shows for his family, employees, country, and the global community.
“What I was passionate about, were these teams of people that worked together on these big deals…I don’t remember much of the details of those deals, but what I remember are the people…”– Donald R. Lindsay
