Indiana’s MetalX LLC announced this week that auto and aluminum industry veteran Kevin Moore has joined the firm as a senior marketing executive. As such, his responsibilities include managing aluminium trading activities for scrap and refined products, hedging and risk management, scrap agency and industrial management programs, and corporate strategic planning.
He will continue to consult other companies in the metals and mining market, and his own business venture, All Raw Material Consulting, has been rolled into MetalX’s portfolio as well.
“We are excited for Kevin to join the MetalX family, as his extensive knowledge, impeccable credentials and outstanding personal reputation will be integral to the advancement of our strategic aluminum initiatives,” says Danny Rifkin, MetalX’s CEO. “In addition, Kevin’s business philosophy and his personal values are compatible with ours, so we expect him to hit the ground running.”
“I’m happy to be part of an exciting and energetic organization that looks at this industry in such a progressive manner,” said Moore. “MetalX and the Rifkin family have an outstanding reputation and a demonstrated ability to make things happen.
