18 July 2019 – EVRAZ (LSE: EVR; “EVRAZ” or the “Group”) today announced the appointment of James “Skip” Herald as President and CEO of EVRAZ North America, effective 05 August 2019.

Skip joins EVRAZ from AXIP Energy, where he served as a CEO. James has 35-years of experience in the oil & gas and energy pipe industries, having served in senior executive positions in several market-leading companies, including Vallourec, a French based tubes manufacturer and Halliburton, a global energy services provider.

Conrad Winkler, EVRAZ North America's CEO since July 2013, is leaving to pursue opportunities outside the Group.

“I wish to thank Conrad for his valuable contribution to maintaining EVRAZ North America's market leadership and I wish him success in his future pursuits.
