Ryerson Holding Corporation has appointed James Claussen as executive vice president and chief financial officer, effective Jan. 11.
Claussen joined Ryerson in 2002 and has held several senior management and leadership positions including CFO of Ryerson’s North-West Region and general manager of corporate development. He was named president of Central Steel & Wire Co. following its acquisition by Ryerson in 2018. Claussen will retain his position as president of CS&W until a successor is named.
“I could not be more delighted for Ryerson’s stakeholders that Jim will become Ryerson’s next executive vice president and chief financial officer,” said Ryerson President and CEO Eddie Lehner. “Jim took the road less traveled by developing a track record of accomplishment in our company and industry spanning senior financial and operational leadership positions over more than 18 years that makes him uniquely qualified to excel in the role as we move into the next phase of our company’s transformation.”
