James D. Esway has joined Olympic Steel as general manager of the company's facilities in Buford, and Winder, Ga. He will lead the day-to-day operation of both facilities, which have continued to experience notable growth since the opening of the Buford facility in 2020.
David J. Gea will continue to serve as vice president for the region, which includes both Georgia facilities as well as a distribution center in Hanceville, Ala.
Esway has more than 20 years of commercial and leadership experience in the metals industry, most recently as chief commercial officer for a metals and industrial products manufacturer, processor and distributor.
"We could not be happier to have James join our team," said Gea. "He is a driven leader who will help accelerate our growth in the southeast region."
