Jean-Sebastien Jacques: “As a global company we need to be able to move people around. Rio Tinto shares have doubled and dividends have hit record highs after Jean-Sebastien Jacques’ first two years in charge, but that doesn’t mean the French-born chief executive doesn’t have plenty to worry about. Take tightening visa and migration rules, for example, which he sees as part of a global trend against the free movement of people and a growing challenge for global employers like Rio.

The large corporates have been slightly out of touch, that is the reality of it, so I think we need to fix it,” he says.
