Allegheny Technologies’ veteran IR chief to retire
Allegheny Technologies (ATI), the US-based specialty metals company, has announced that veteran IR chief Daniel Greenfield is stepping down from his IR post and plans to retire in early 2018.
He is succeeded by Scott Minder, who joins from PPG Industries to serve as ATI’s new vice president of investor relations.
During a 35-year career at ATI, Greenfield led the IR function for 16 years. He will stay on as vice president and special counsel to the CFO until his retirement to ensure a ‘smooth transition’ of the IR operation, according to a company statement.
‘On behalf of the board of directors and all of the employees of ATI, I want to extend our appreciation and gratitude to Dan for his 35 years of service to ATI,’ says Rich Harshman, ATI’s chairman, president and CEO, in the statement.
Minder served as director of investor relations at PPG Industries for nearly two and a half years. He moved into IR after working in senior finance roles at the supplier of paints, coatings and specialty materials. Prior to that, he worked at Penske Logistics as director of global quality and director of finance. His career started at General Motors where he served in finance, audit and IR roles.
To replace Minder, PPG Industries has named John Bruno, most recently CFO for the Asia-Pacific region, as its new director of IR.
