Written by Sandy Williams

Olympic Steel has promoted Andrew Greiff to president, succeeding David Wolfort who has served as president for the past 18 years. Greiff will take on responsibilities as president while continuing as chief operating officer. As president and COO, he will be responsible for strategic leadership of Olympic Steel’s commercial efforts, including the management of sales, purchasing and operations.

“Andrew has played an important role in the expansion and diversification of our business,” said CEO Richard T. Marabito. “He has a deep understanding of the metals industry and has demonstrated exceptional leadership as our COO, and previously as president of our specialty metals business. We will benefit from his wisdom, experience and guidance as we continue on our path of profitable growth.”

Wolfort will continue to serve the company in a senior advisor capacity and as a member of the board of directors.

“During his more than 35 years with the company, David has been the chief architect of our commercial success and growth. David’s tireless commitment to Olympic Steel and all those we serve has helped shape the business to become a leading U.S. metals service center with more than $1.7 billion in annual revenue,” said Marabito.

“This seamless leadership transition is the result of a thoughtfully planned succession,” said Marabito. “We thank David for his exceptional contributions and confidently look forward to Andrew’s leadership.”

Greiff began his career in the metals industry in 1985, serving as a consultant for Thyssen Steel and Krupp Steel in Germany. He held various senior leadership positions within the industry before joining Olympic Steel in 2009 as vice president of specialty metals. He was promoted to president of specialty Metals in 2011 and most recently served as the company’s executive vice president and COO since 2016.
