CHICAGO Brad Soultz has been named president of the North American operations of Algeco Scotsman Holding Sàrl.
Soultz, who was previously chief commercial and strategy officer at Atlanta-based aluminum products maker Novelis Inc., has been at Algeco Scotsman since Jan. 13, the Baltimore-based prefabricated modular space provider said in a statement.
Soultz, who joined Novelis in 2005 after its spin-off from Montreal-based Alcan Inc., replaces Joseph Vecchiolla, who resigned as president of Algeco Scotsmans U.S. operations effective Jan. 10.
"Brad brings a wealth of experience that will be very valuable to Algeco Scotsman," company president and chief executive officer Jean-Marc Germain said in a statement.
Soultz resigned from Novelis earlier this month "to pursue a new opportunity," a Novelis spokesman told AMM via e-mail Jan. 23. "The company will announce succession plans for the chief commercial and strategy officer role in due course," he said.
