The Platts Global Metals Awards aim to honor and recognize the people and companies at the pinnacle of the metals industry. They point us towards a new paragon, and reveal a path to excellence in leadership, innovation, safety, integrity and overall performance – whatever market conditions may bring. This year, Platts received more than 100 nominations, narrowing them to an impressive roster of finalists from 17 countries competing for 15 category awards, including the coveted title “Metals Company of the Year.”
In the fourth year for the Global Metals Awards, nominations were more deeply dispersed across the full slate of performance categories than ever before. Despite the broad spectrum of businesses represented, the winners shared a talent for reading the markets well and acting decisively. For some, the path to growth led them through reduction, realignment and restraint, while others expanded cautiously with an eye towards future growth. All of our winners made it through 2015’s wild ride and emerged equipped not only to survive, but also to succeed.
Judging was conducted by an impartial panel of independent judges: Alberto Hassan, Former President amp; CEO, Orinoco Iron; David King, Former CEO and Director, LME; Jim Lennon, Former Chairman of Commodities, Macquarie; Rana Som, Former Chairman, NMDC and Hindustan Copper; and Michael
Setterdahl, Former Managing Director of Nucor Trading. Winners were honored on May 19 at a black-tie dinner in London.
