Glencore appoints new CEO for Zambia's Mopani mine

LUSAKA, July 29 (Reuters) - Commodity trader Glencore International Plc has appointed the head of its Congolese subsidiary as chief executive of Zambia’s Mopani Copper Mines, Mopani said on Friday.

Danny Callow takes over from Emmanuel Mutati who was appointed chairman of the company this week, it said.
