Olympic Taps Tookey for Coated Products Role

Olympic Steel said Michael A. Tookey has joined the company in the newly created role of director of coated products.

The Highland Hills, Ohio-based metals service center said Tookey’s responsibilities will focus the company’s efforts on accelerating growth related to coated carbon flat-rolled products and processes, including galvanized, galvannealed, aluminized, and automotive grades of steel.

He will report directly to David J. Gea, president – Carbon Flat-Rolled, Olympic said.

“Mike’s years of experience in our industry, particularly on the mill side of the business, will be a significant benefit to Olympic Steel in our ongoing growth efforts,” Gea said in a statement.

“Carbon flat products represent approximately 50% of our revenue mix. Mike’s efforts will help us continue to diversify and grow in higher-return, value-added products and services,” he continued.

Tookey joins Olympic Steel with more than 20 years of global metals industry sales and service experience.
