HOUSTON (ICIS)--Alcoa has promoted Roy Harvey to chief operating officer for the company’s Global Primary Products (GPP) business, while Leigh Ann Fisher has been selected to succeed him as GPP chief financial officer, the US-based aluminium major announced on Thursday.

Both promotions are effective immediately.

Harvey will focus on the day-to-day operations of Alcoa’s 22 aluminium smelters and nine alumina refineries worldwide, as well as bauxite assets in Australia, Brazil and other locations, Alcoa said.

Fisher had been group controller for GPP.

"Roy has an impressive international track record, leading complex operations in Brazil, Spain and Central America," said Klaus Kleinfeld, Alcoa CEO. "As an experienced CFO Roy has acute financial expertise and operational insight.”

"Leigh Ann’s solid foundation in finance, spanning upstream and downstream businesses at Alcoa, will add valuable perspective to our senior leadership team,” Kleinfeld added. “She has made important contributions to our success by driving systemic improvements in financial processes such as forecast accuracy, financial modeling and reporting.”
