NEW YORK — Industry veteran Michael Wagner has joined Essar Steel Algoma Inc. as its chief sales and marketing officer, a company spokeswoman confirmed.

Wagner has joined the company’s commercial team, the spokeswoman told AMM via e-mail, subject to regulatory approval.

"He looks forward to meeting with customers in the weeks ahead," she added.

Wagner previously worked at Charlotte, N.C.-based Nucor Corp.’s Crawfordsville, Ind., plant as a general sales manager. He then led sales for the former Birmingham Steel Corp. (, Jan. 14, 2003). Wagner later co-founded SeverCorr LLC with John Correnti in Columbus, Miss. He served as executive vice president and chief commercial officer but left during its executive shakeup (, Dec. 13, 2007).

Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario-based Essar Steel Algoma has an annual raw steel production capacity of some 4 million tons and produces a variety of slab, plate and sheet products, according to its website.
