(Dow Jones) -- Potash Corp. of Saskatchewan Ltd. said late Sunday that Bill Doyle, longtime president and chief executive, will step down in July after a 27-year career with the potash-mining giant.

Potash Corp., Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, said mining veteran Jochen Tilk will take over from Doyle, who has held the top post since 1999 and will remain as a senior adviser until June 2015.

A company spokesman said Doyle is 64 years old.

Tilk most recently was president and chief executive of Inmet Mining, which was taken over last year by First Quantum Minerals Ltd. after a hostile battle.
