American Heavy Plates has named steel industry veteran Jack Biegalski to be its new president and chief operating officer and Roxana Stoicea to be its chief financial officer.
Biegalski, who has 35 years of experience in steel, most recently worked as director of sales and marketing for plate at ArcelorMittal USA.
Stoicea has 15 years experience in finance, operations and strategy in the aerospace castings, OEM components, and industrial consumables sectors, American Heavy Plates said.
Both will report to Robert Schaal, chief executive officer. Biegalski fills the role of president that opened when Schaal was promoted to CEO. Stoicea will serve as the company’s first CFO.
“Biegalski and Stoicea are joining AHP at a pivotal time in the company’s development. They are looking forward to working with the rest of the management team to realize the full potential of this growing player in the heavy plates market,” American Heavy Plates said.
American Heavy Plates operates a steel plate rolling mill in Clarington, Ohio, and provides a full menu of plate processing services, according to the company’s website.
