MELBOURNE, Australia--BHP Group's (BHP) chief transformation officer will leave the company in 2020, the second senior executive to step down from the global resources company in recent days.

BHP said Jonathan Price will oversee the transition of the transformation programs to the company's assets and functions that are responsible for them during the first half of next year, after which he will leave the company and move back to the U.K. with his family, according to an emailed statement Friday.

"We created the transformation office to accelerate change at BHP and bring focus to our activity and our processes on value creation," outgoing Chief Executive Andrew Mackenzie said. "Transformation will now become a core accountability of every leader within BHP and will be accelerated through their delivery plans."

Over the last 18 months, the transformation office at BHP focused on areas including culture and innovation.

BHP on Monday said Chief Technology Officer Diane Jurgens will leave BHP in early 2020 to move back to the U.S. to be closer to her family. Ms. Jurgens joined the British-Australian mining company in 2015.

Last month, BHP named company veteran Mike Henry as its next CEO, taking over from Mr. Mackenzie at start of the new year.
