The miner has added a number of fresh board members since 2016, when Jean-Sébastien Jacques became chief executive.
Rio is currently facing scrutiny from regulators of some of its past activities, with the US Securities and Exchange Commission and the UK’s Serious Fraud Office both probing alleged fraud and corruption cases from earlier this decade.
Glass Lewis, one of the world’s biggest shareholder advisory groups, last year told The Sunday Telegraph it wanted a shake-up of Rio’s audit committee, which monitors its financial reporting.
Mr Tellier, a member of that committee, is Rio’s longest-standing non-executive director, in post since 2007. A former chief executive of Canadian manufacturer Bombardier, he will step down after Rio’s Australian annual general meeting in May.
