Olympic Steel has promoted Francis M. (Frank) Ruane to the role of Executive Vice President – Supply Chain.

“Frank’s expertise in supply chain, distribution, inventory management and routes to market have played an important role in Olympic Steel’s commercial planning and business strategy,” said President and COO Andrew Greiff. “His careful assessment of the current and future value of metals products in U.S. and global markets has been invaluable to our commercial teams and enabled us to provide effective insights and market education to our customers and industry partners.”

Ruane entered the industry in 1985, achieving roles of increasing responsibility before joining Olympic Steel in 1998. Prior to his current appointment, he held the positions of Director – Corporate Purchasing and Materials Management and, most recently, Vice President – Purchasing. In his new role, Ruane will continue to lead Olympic Steel’s supply chain efforts and manage the company’s distribution and proprietary fleet.
