What I Enjoy Most About My Job
Working with great people around the world.
Most Significant Developments in the Industry during My Career
The launch of the Zinc Saves Kids initiative with UNICEF.
My View of the Current State of the Industry
I believe the current position is strong, but there is potential to do more. I think the largest challenge to reaching that potential is the economic growth rate in China and how that affects internal use of products versus exports to North America.
My View of the Impact of the AGA
The AGA is an excellent partner for joint initiatives with zinc and the galvanizing industry benefiting both. The AGA has also been a great source for networking and friendship.
Other Interesting Things that Shape My Life
I play beach volleyball, and I feel it for a week after each match!
I have a galvanized roof on my house.
