Head Promoted to President of O'Neal Industries
 
Holman Head, formerly the president and CEO of O'Neal Steel, has been promoted to president and chief operating officer of O'Neal Industries Inc., the parent company of O'Neal Steel and numerous other leading brands in the metals industry. Additionally, Stephen Armstrong, who had been vice president and CFO at O'Neal Steel, will become president and CEO of that company. Both changes went into effect April 1.

The moves follow the March announcement of the retirement of Bill Jones, ONI's vice chairman. The 2005 Metal Center News Service Center Executive of the Year is stepping down from the Birmingham, Ala.-based company June 30.

Head has been with O'Neal Steel since 1980, working in inside and outside sales, corporate marketing, specialty products, district management, regional management, purchasing, product development, and executive management. In 2009, following the formation of O'Neal Industries, he assumed his current title and became executive vice president of ONI. During his tenure as O'Neal Steel president, he led the company through a major reorganization resulting in a refocus on metals distribution and the formation of O'Neal Manufacturing Services as a freestanding company.

In his new position, Head will have direct responsibility for the marketing and business development department and the organization's Industrial Metals Group, which includes O'Neal Steel, O'Neal Manufacturing Services, O'Neal Flat Rolled Metals and Leeco Steel.

"Holman's 34 years of experience, covering nearly every facet of our business from working on the sales desk to leading our largest company, have uniquely prepared him for his new role. Having worked through some of the best and worst cycles of the economy, his perspective on industry leadership and success will be invaluable," says Craft O'Neal, ONI chairman and CEO.
