“I think there still is a lot of potential in promoting aluminium as the metal of the future, and I’m very much looking forward to taking on this challenge,” says Aboud, who already holds the position of chairman of the Aluminum Association’s Statistical and Market Research Committee.
The Aluminum Association, based in Arlington, Virginia, works globally to promote aluminium as the most sustainable and recyclable automotive, packaging and construction material in today's market.
The Association represents U.S. and foreign-based primary producers of aluminium, aluminium recyclers and producers of fabricated products, as well as industry suppliers.
Member companies operate more than 200 plants in the U.S., with many conducting business worldwide.
Aboud joined Hydro in 2003 and has served in several roles, including in strategy, sales and risk management. He holds an MBA from Columbia Business School and an undergraduate degree in Economics from the University of Virginia.
Hydro is a major global supplier of primary aluminium and aluminium products.
