Keith Shuttlesworth has joined Flack Global Metals as executive vice president of Flack Metal Bank. The company launched FMB in 2021 to allow buyers of flat-rolled metal products to take advantage of pricing on the forward curve regardless of whether they secure physical inventory from FGM or maintain existing supply relationships.
Shuttlesworth is a steel industry veteran with more than two decades of commercial and procurement experience. He joins FMB to lead efforts to increase market awareness of the financial tools available to reduce price volatility and help customers implement risk management and hedging strategies to complement their current supply chains.
Before joining FMB, Shuttlesworth was the CCO at Big River Steel and was instrumental in leading the company’s startup and phase two expansion. He was responsible for sales, marketing, and technical services, and was heavily involved in Big River’s metallics procurement. Before his tenure at Big River, Shuttlesworth spent more than 18 years at U.S. Steel Corporation, where he advanced through many sales and marketing positions in both the United States and Europe.
"We have the best ferrous trading desk in the world supporting Flack Global Metals and now Flack Metal Bank," said Jeremy Flack, Founder and Chief Executive Officer. "By bringing Keith onboard, we are adding the best commercial talent to that team to educate and encourage buyers on our long-held belief that hedging is the best way to provide certainty in securing metals supply and pricing."
