January 19, 2004
Alcan Inc. has announced its new management team and structure, following completion of the Pechiney transaction. "Today's announcement represents the next step toward the creation of a better company and one that is poised to face the new challenges that lie ahead," said Travis Engen, president and chief executive officer. "Integration with our Pechiney colleagues is proceeding swiftly, as witnessed by today's announcement of the next level of organizational structure." The announcement defines the organizational structure of the business groups and the functional direct reports. The nominations were developed and confirmed in conjunction with the Integration Selection Committee, previously created by agreement between Alcan and Pechiney. The committee reviewed both Alcan and Pechiney candidates for these positions, as well as for other selected key positions, which will be announced in the coming weeks.
