CHICAGO Ryerson Inc. has
named William S. Johnson as interim chief financial officer
effective April 12.
He replaces Terence Rogers, who is
leaving the company to pursue a new career outside the metals
service center sector.
"We are now conducting a global
search for a long-term replacement. In the meantime, Bill
Johnson is a proven CFO with more than 15 years of experience
in metals distribution, and he is uniquely qualified to step in
during the transition," Mike Arnold, chief executive officer of
Chicago-based Ryerson, said in a statement.
Johnson previously held the same
role at such major service center chains as PNA Group Inc. and
Earle M. Jorgensen Co., and most recently served in the same
capacity at engineering and construction company Brinderson LP,
Costa Mesa, Calif.
