Teck’s Don Lindsay takes a calm view of Asia

Few executives know Asia the way Don Lindsay does.

The CEO of diversified mining company Teck Resources Ltd. travels to the region every quarter to see his company’s coal, copper and zinc drive the industrialization of countries such as China, the world’s largest steel maker. He has some powerful friends: a Chinese state-owned investor, a large Japanese voting shareholder, and he has watched China’s growth boost demand at Teck’s mines in the United States, Canada, Peru and Chile.
