Cleveland-based aluminum producer Aleris has named Terrence Hogan as its new senior vice president and general manager of Recycling and Specification Alloys Americas and Russell Barr as its new vice president and general manger of Recycling Europe. Hogan and Barr will both report directly to Steve Demetriou, Aleris’ chairman and CEO.

The company also has announced that K. Alan Dick, executive vice president and CEO of Global Recycling, is leaving the company.

“Given the dynamics of the recycling business, we believe this regional leadership structure is more effective for this business segment,” Demetriou says. “As the largest merchant aluminum recycler and supplier of specification alloys in the United States and Europe, Aleris Recycling continues to be a strategically important part of our business, and we are confident that these changes will only enhance our ability to meet customer needs.”

Dick, who has been with the company for 14 years, helped integrate Commonwealth Industries with IMCO Recycling, which created Aleris in 2004. Prior to leading the company’s global recycling business, Dick served as executive vice president and president for Rolled Products North America.

Hogan, who has more than 30 years of experience in the industry, has been with Aleris since 2006, following the company’s acquisition of Alumitech, of which Hogan was president.

Barr most recently served as vice president and general manager of the company’s Extrusions division. Prior to that, Barr served as director of Non-Metals Purchasing-Europe.

Following Barr’s appointment, Aleris named Mike Keown vice president and general manager of the company’s Extrusion division.
