Walker to Retire from Olympic Steel
Raymond Walker will retire in March as president and chief operating officer of Flat Rolled at Olympic Steel after more than 30 years with the Cleveland-based service center company. John Mooney will succeed Walker as president and COO of the Flat Rolled division. Mooney has served numerous roles at Olympic since joining the company in 1989, most recently as vice president of the Eastern Region.
"Our largest sales volume segment remains carbon flat products. During Ray's tenure, we have experienced substantial growth in facilities, processing capabilities and sales volume, resulting in record high market share for carbon sheet and plate products," says Michael Siegal, Olympic chairman and CEO. "His record of accomplishment reflects our corporate values of loyally serving customers and the community."
Additionally, Olympic has promoted Andrew Markowitz to president of the company’s Specialty Metals division. He joined Olympic in 2010 when it acquired Integrity Stainless, the company he founded.
