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.
