Eddie Lehner, president and CEO of Ryerson Holding Corp., has been named to the service center’s board of directors, expanding the board from seven to eight members.

“Eddie has been a tremendous leader and his accomplishments as president and CEO have been transformative for Ryerson,” said Jacob Kotzubei, a member of Ryerson’s board. “He brings to this appointment a deep knowledge of the metals industry and a fantastic track record of executing on his vision for Ryerson. The board looks forward to continuing to work with him in this expanded capacity.”

Lehner joined Ryerson in 2012 as its chief financial officer before becoming president and CEO in 2015. Prior to joining Ryerson, he served in CFO positions with PSC Metals, Inc., and SeverCorr, LLC. His career also includes senior general management, operational, financial, accounting, tax and consulting roles for Nucor Corp., Birmingham Steel Corp. and Deloitte & Touche LLP.

“It is my true honor to join the board at this moment in Ryerson’s storied history with gratitude and humility,” said Lehner. “The work we have done as an organization to improve Ryerson’s financial condition as well as the industrial metals customer experience has come a long way, however our best work together is still to come. I look forward to continuing our progress as a member of the board in addition to my current president and CEO responsibilities.”

Chicago-based Ryerson is a leading value-added processor and distributor of industrial metals, with operations in the United States, Canada, Mexico and China.
