Fair play and Fowle

Michael Fowle, propelled into the chairmanship of Vedanta Resources by the departure of Brian Gilbertson, had a reasonably smooth time at the UK-listed Indian mining and metals group's inaugural annual meeting. Most questions dealt with the impact of activities of Sterlite, Vedanta's subsidiary, in the Indian states of Orissa and Tamil Nadu. Of Gilbertson, who left because of his potential involvement with Russian metals group Sual, Fowle said only: "[He] had a great deal of drive but decided that he would use that drive elsewhere." Gilbertson, meanwhile, was a guest of Russian Aluminium, Sual's rival, at a Bolshoi Ballet performance of Romeo and Juliet in London on Wednesday night. He was spotted chatting to Rio Tinto boss Leigh Clifford, his foe when Gilbertson headed BHP Billiton. A sector more like bosom buddies than Montagues and Capulets.
