Metso Metal Recycling, headquartered in Helsinki with U.S. offices in San Antonio, has added to the staff of its American region operations with the appointments of Jim Jagou as account manager for Mexico and Central America and Mark Haire as director, contract and project management.
Jagou will focus on developing business opportunities and improving customer relationships in Mexico and Latin America and will be based in Atlanta, Metso says.
“Jim’s years of sales experience in the recycling industry, and his strong relationships throughout the region, will be an asset as we continue to re-establish and grow our business interests in Mexico,” says Jim Stepanek, Metso general manager of sales for North America.
Haire has more than 10 years of experience in the metal recycling industry. He previously worked at Harris in several roles, including director of engineering and vice president of recycling solutions. In his new role, Haire will manage all capital equipment projects for the Texas Shredder product line and will oversee execution of these installations in North America.
“We are very excited to bring Mark aboard,” says Keith Carroll, vice president, Metal Recycling Americas. “Mark brings a keen insight into the manufacture and installation of shredders from his previous experience. His industry knowledge, work ethic and attention to detail are ideally suited to helping drive our business forward as the industry continues to grow and evolve.”
