The board of the Brussels-based Bureau of International Recycling (BIR) Ferrous Division has appointed Denis Reuter, chief operating officer of TSR Recycling GmbH & Co. KG, as new president.

Reuter is a long-standing member of BIR and has been active on the Ferrous divisional board since 2019, the association says. He joined TSR in 2010 and now is responsible for all the trading activities for ferrous and nonferrous metals.

TSR Recycling, with its headquarters in Lünen, Germany, is a major European scrap trading and processing company and has 160 locations, mainly in Germany, the Czech Republic, the Netherlands and Poland. The company provides services for the metalworking trade, large industries and municipalities.

Reuter’s appointment was recommended to the divisional board by the Division’s Nominating Committee. In his capacity as Ferrous Division president, Reuter is a member of the BIR Executive Committee and serves as vice president of the organization.

“I am delighted to welcome Denis to the BIR Executive Committee, and I am certain that he will greatly contribute to BIR’s roadmap for the years to come,” says BIR President Tom Bird. “Having worked with him on the Ferrous board, I am confident that he will prove to be a great asset.”

Reuter replaces Gregory Schnitzer of Sims Metal Management.
