The Aluminum Association, Arlington, Virginia, has announced that Tom Dobbins, president and chief executive officer of the association, will be leaving his role at the end of October. Dobbins had stepped into the president and CEO position in March 2020.

The association says its board of directors has thanked Dobbins for his service to the association and the aluminum industry.

As the association conducts the search for a new president and CEO, several other executives within the association will serve on the association’s interim leadership team. The association’s interim leadership team includes Joe Quinn, vice president of external affairs at the Aluminum Association; Ryan Olsen, vice president of market growth and development at the Aluminum Association; and Matt Meenan, senior director of external affairs at the Aluminum Association.

“I have great confidence in our interim leadership team and the full association staff to continue to execute on behalf of the entire industry,” says Buddy Stemple, chair of the Aluminum Association. “The team will continue its excellent work on the Aluminum Agenda policy roadmap, our Choose Aluminum sustainability campaign and other efforts.”
