Brock Leaving Aluminum Association

By on

President and CEO Heidi Brock is resigning and will leave the Aluminum Association later this year to become president and CEO of the American Forest and Paper Association. The Aluminum Association board of directors has begun a search for her successor.

“Over nearly eight years as President and CEO, Heidi has grown the Aluminum Association’s value proposition and membership. Today, the association is speaking with a strong, united voice across the aluminum value chain and is a recognized leader on critical issues including sustainability and trade,” said Michelle O’Neill, Alcoa senior vice president for global government affairs and sustainability, and chair of the Aluminum Association. “On behalf of the Aluminum Association’s Board of Directors, I thank her for her outstanding service to our association and our industry.”

Since Brock joined the Aluminum Association in 2011, the group has grown signifcantly. The association now represents more than 120 member companies across the full aluminum value chain, and those companies produce 70 percent of all aluminum and aluminum products shipped in North America. Under her leadership, the Aluminum Association also led two successful trade enforcement cases and highlighted industry leadership on sustainability.
