SASKATOON, April 6, 2014 /CNW/ - Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan Inc. 
(PotashCorp) today announced that the Board of Directors has appointed Jochen 
Tilk as President and CEO, effective July 1, 2014. 
After 27 years of dedicated service - during which PotashCorp grew to become 
the world's largest crop nutrient company - Bill Doyle will step down as 
President and CEO, but remain employed with the company as a Senior Advisor 
through June 2015. 
"We're pleased to announce Jochen Tilk as the next President and CEO of 
PotashCorp.  Jochen is known for his focus on operational excellence and 
disciplined growth, and the entire Board agreed he was the right person to 
lead the company forward," said Dallas Howe, Chairman of the Board. "The Board 
undertook a rigorous, three-year selection process for the new CEO that 
included the use of international executive search firms and a review of both 
internal and external candidates." 
"Jochen's successful track record, his reputation among peers and commitment 
to the industry made him the ideal candidate to serve our customers and lead 
PotashCorp through our next phase of growth," said Bill Doyle. 
Tilk comes to PotashCorp after a 30-year career in the mining industry, most 
recently serving as President and CEO of Inmet Mining. He was instrumental in 
helping grow that company's market capitalization by 5,000 percent and highly 
regarded by industry colleagues, employees and customers. Throughout his 
career he has earned a reputation for operational excellence, and in his 
previous role he developed - through asset optimization, organic growth and 
strategic acquisitions - a portfolio of facilities that was recognized as a 
leader in quality and cost. Along with these proven accomplishments, Tilk also 
made safety a top priority, fostering a "zero compromise" safety culture. 
"The entire Board of Directors wishes to express its thanks to Bill Doyle for 
his long service as President and CEO, and his input during the succession 
process," said Howe. "Bill has been an exceptional CEO for PotashCorp and, 
under his leadership over the past 15 years, PotashCorp was transformed into 
the global leader it is today. We look forward to Bill's continued involvement 
and counsel as Senior Advisor to our new CEO and the Board." 
"It's been a real privilege to have served PotashCorp for 27 years. The 
company is in great shape and I am more enthusiastic about the future than I 
have ever been, especially with the addition of Jochen Tilk," said Doyle. 
"PotashCorp has the best people, the best assets in the business and excellent 
long-term growth prospects. As the world's largest producer of crop nutrients, 
we will continue to play an important role in improving global food security." 
"I'm honored to join the PotashCorp team and look forward to getting to know 
our employees, community members, investors, customers and other 
stakeholders," said Jochen Tilk, CEO designate. "PotashCorp has grown and 
benefitted enormously under Bill's leadership and the strategies that have 
created tremendous long-term value. I share his philosophy for running the 
company and plan to build on this strong foundation. I'm excited about the 
potential for PotashCorp and look forward to moving to Saskatoon to take up my 
new duties."
