Svein Richard Brandtzæg, president and CEO of Hydro, has been elected vice chairperson of the European Aluminium Association (EAA).
The EAA is the European umbrella group for the aluminium industry, from primary metal production to semi-fabrication of aluminium products to recycling.
EAA represents the interests of the industry in relation to European Union decision-makers. Hydro is a long-standing member and is instrumental in leading the EAA, its policy agenda and interaction with the authorities.
The EAA position is second industry honor for Brandtzæg this year. In May, he was elected chairperson of the International Aluminium Institute, the global aluminium industry association.
