  • In April 2012 it was reported that Ivan Glasenberg, CEO of Glencore International since 2002, held more than 15 per cent of Glencore's stock. Once the Xstrata-Glencore merger materializes, Glasenberg will take over the whole empire. As Glencore International already controls 50% of the addressable market for refined copper, is Glasenberg becoming too powerful?
