Olympic Steel has made leadership changes relating to the company’s fabrication growth strategy.
The Cleveland-based metals service center said in a press release Tuesday that Edward ‘Max’ Fitzgerald has joined the company in the newly created role of vice president – fabrication.
Fitzgerald will focus on strengthening the company’s “fabrication-related commercial presence, facilitating operational standardization, and implementing new technologies,” the company said. He will report directly to Andrew Greiff, president and COO.
Fitzgerald’s most recent role was as a global category procurement manager for an international OEM, the release said.
Also, Matthew Grussing has been named director of sales – fabrication, Olympic said, adding that Grussing will report directly to Fitzgerald in this newly created role, focusing “on developing and implementing strategies to grow the company’s fabrication business.”
Grussing joined Olympic Steel in 2010 as an inside sales representative, most recently serving as general manager for its Minneapolis plate facility.
“These changes represent the next significant step forward in executing our comprehensive strategy to increase returns and reduce earnings volatility by investing in and growing Olympic Steel’s fabrication business,” president and COO Greiff said in the release.
