NEW YORK Steel Manufacturers Association (SMA) president Thomas A. Danjczek will retire at the end of the year.
Danjczek, who has been president of the Washington-based trade association since 1998, will remain involved with the SMA in an advisory role after his retirement. A successor has not been named.
Tom has had an outstanding record of achievement at the SMA, growing the organization and adding value to the membership in safety, environment, trade, energy, transportation and other public policy matters, John Ferriola, chairman of the SMA and chairman and chief executive of Charlotte, N.C.-based steelmaker Nucor Corp., said in a statement. He has been an enthusiastic and effective advocate for our mini-mill industry.
Prior to his tenure at the SMA, Danjczek spent 30 years in the steel industry, serving in maintenance, operations and management positions at a number of companies, including Bethlehem Steel Corp., Kaiser Steel Corp. and Wheeling-Pittsburgh Steel Corp.
