Written by Laura Miller

Alacero has named new top leaders to guide its ongoing transformation and modernization process, the Latin American steel association said in a statement sent to SMU.

Alacero designated Ezequiel Tavernelli its new executive director as of June 1. He takes over from Alejandro Wagner, who returned to Argentina to pursue other avenues.

Tavernelli is an industrial engineer with 28 years of experience in the steel industry. He has held various positions at the Techint Group and Ternium in his home country of Argentina.

Alacero also recently elected a new president. Jorge Luiz Ribeiro de Oliveira, CEO of ArcelorMittal Aços Planos and VP of ArcelorMittal Brazil, will serve for 2024-25, the association said.

São Paulo-based Alacero has more than 60 member companies with ~62 million tons of production capacity. It represents Latin America’s steel industry at various international organizations, such as the World Steel Association and the OECD.
