Buenaventura (BVN): Roque Benavides steps down as CEO

As from January 2nd 2017, the new CEO of Buenaventura will be Victor Gobitz, poached from Peru's Milpo to take over the running of Peru's biggest gold mining company (that does plenty of silver and copper, too). In this Spanish language interview Roque B explains the reasons behind the change, but as he's staying on as President and the Benavides family holds all the Class A voting shares, don't expect a sudden change in corporate policy or think for a minute that BVN is now a buyout candidate. It isn't.
