Peabody Energy (NYSE: BTU) Chairman And CEO Greg Boyce Honored With University Of Arizona Alumni Of The Year Award

ST. LOUIS, Nov. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- In honor of his outstanding career achievements and enduring dedication to the University of Arizona's College of Engineering and its Department of Mining and Geological Engineering, Peabody Energy Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Gregory H. Boyce has been recognized as a 2013 University of Arizona Alumnus of the Year.  Boyce accepted the honor from the University of Arizona Alumni Association at the university's annual Alumni of the Year Awards presentation ceremony in Tucson, Ariz.

"I am truly honored to be named by the College of Engineering as a University of Arizona alumnus of the year, particularly given the extraordinary achievements, and dedication to service, of my fellow honorees, past and present," said Boyce.  "The world-class education I received at the university laid the foundations for countless professional and personal milestones, and marked the start of a four-decade career in mining that has taken me around the globe.  It has been my privilege to continue to support the university and its students as an alumnus."

During his career in mining and energy, Boyce has worked across a wide range of commodities, including copper, uranium, gold and coal.  He previously held roles with Kennecott Copper and Rio Tinto, before joining Peabody Energy in 2003 as President and Chief Operating Officer.  In 2006, Boyce rose to President and Chief Executive Officer of Peabody and was elected as Chairman of the Board in 2007.

Boyce is the architect of the Peabody Plan, which outlines steps to eliminate energy poverty and achieve continued improvement in clean coal technologies through the global build-out of state-of-the-art coal-fueled generation.

Boyce's career has previously been recognized with a number of honors.  In 2012, he was inducted into the Mining Foundation of the Southwest's American Mining Hall of Fame in recognition of his outstanding leadership in the global mining sector and his plan to eradicate energy poverty.
