Brazil's Vale nominates Cuenca as chief compliance officer
SAO PAULO, July 20 (Reuters) - Vale SA VALE3.SA said on Monday that Denis Cuenca has been nominated as the Brazilian miner's chief compliance officer.
Cuenca will report directly to Vale's board, it said in a securities filing.
His nomination comes after the board approved the creation of a compliance division as part of recommendations given by an independent committee in February to strengthen governance, safety and risk management.
