Kloeckner Appoints New CFO

Written by Laura Miller

Kloeckner Metals Corp. has named three new executives, including incoming CFO Angela Arellano Villamar.


Villamar began working for Kloeckner in 2008, and most recently served as vice president of accounting and controlling. 

Bob Cromley has been promoted to the newly created position of chief procurement officer at Kloeckner. Prior to his previous appointment as executive vice president of procurement in 2018, he served as regional vice president of Kloeckner’s southeast flat-rolled products group. Before joining Kloeckner in 2001, Cromley worked for ArcelorMittal.

Steve Erdman, who joined Kloeckner in June, has been promoted to chief human resources officer, another newly created position. The company hopes this will help to create a people-centric environment, and make Kloeckner an employer of choice in the metals industry. Erdman previously worked for Boeing and Coca-Cola.

The three appointments were effective as of Nov. 1. Villamar succeeds Andrea Moseley, who will be leaving Kloeckner.

Service center group Kloeckner Metals, based in Roswell, Ga., is a subsidiary of Duisburg, Germany-based Klöckner & Co. It operates more than 30 locations throughout the U.S.
