Sims Metal Management has announced that Galdino Claro is the company’s new CEO and managing director, and will begin in his new role on November 4.
"I am delighted that Galdino has agreed to lead our Company. He has the experience and tenacity, as well as the personal qualities and vision, to make the difficult decisions necessary to steer Sims Metal Management through the global environment it confronts at this time, as well as positioning the Company for any recovery in international markets," said chairman Geoff Brunsdon in a statement.
Brunsdon said that the appointment came after an international search of both internal and external candidates.
Claro’s previous role, from July 2010, was as executive VP and CEO of metals and minerals at New York-Stock Exchange-listed Harsco Corporation.
