Russian mining and metals companies, reports that Alexey Ivanushkin was
appointed First Deputy Chief Executive Officer.
Alexey Ivanushkin will be in charge of Mechel’s strategic development issues,
optimizing the company’s structure and disposal of non-core assets.
“Alexey Ivanushkin is a highly qualified manager who has been with the company
since its founding. With him at the helm, Mechel has become a vertically
integrated industrial holding. In 2013, he concluded a successful deal on sale
of the Group’s ferroalloy assets and will now take charge of one of our most
complicated tasks — disposal of the company’s non-core assets. Thus, Alexey
Ivanushkin’s responsibilities will in the broad sense include implementation of
the company’s development strategy,” Mechel OAO’s Chief Executive Officer Oleg
Korzhov noted.
Prior to his appointment, Alexey G. Ivanushkin has been working as the Chief
Executive Officer of Oriel Resources Ltd (part of Mechel Group) since 2009. He
served as Mechel’s Chief Operating Officer from 2004 to 2009. From 2003 to 2004
Mr. Ivanushkin held the position of Mechel Steel Group OAO Chief Executive
Officer. From 1999 to 2002 Mr. Ivanushkin served as the Chief Executive Officer
of Chelyabinsk Metallurgical Plant. From 1993 to 1999 he was employed as the
Director of the Department of Ferrous Metals and Ferroalloys in the Moscow
office of Glencore International AG.

Mr. Ivanushkin has a degree in economics and international relations from the
