ArcelorMittal Joins Global Steel Dynamics Forum Agenda 

6/6/2023 - Two senior ArcelorMittal executives have been confirmed as speakers for the inaugural Global Steel Dynamics Forum, rounding out a superior, three-day conference agenda. 

Speaking on behalf of the world’s No. 2 steel producer will be Brad Davey, executive vice president and head of corporate business optimization, and Nicola Davidson, vice president for sustainable development and corporate communications.  

Davey, who is responsible for ArcelorMittal’s research and development efforts and coordinates global automotive activities, will address delegates on the conference’s opening day, 26 June. 

Davidson is set to participate in a 27 June panel discussion about dueling green steel standards, one championed by ArcelorMittal, ResponsibleSteel, and the other by a consortium of EAF producers, the Global Steel Climate Council. Davidson chairs ArcelorMittal’s climate change committee. 

In addition to Davey and Davidson, the program features an A-List of global steel executives: Nucor chairman and chief executive officer Leon Topalian will speak, as will Cleveland-Cliffs Inc. chairman and chief executive officer Lourenco Goncalves. The agenda also includes Alan Kestenbaum, executive chairman of Stelco, and Máximo Vedoya, chief executive officer of Ternium, among many others. 

“Our vision for the Global Steel Dynamics Forum was to attract senior leaders throughout the industry, including the investment community and media, to assess the trajectory for steel over the next several years. We already have a robust agenda, and with ArcelorMittal now represented, we will be able to offer our attendees an even broader perspective,” said AIST executive director Ron Ashburn. 

AIST is organizing the Global Steel Dynamics Forum in partnership with research and consulting firm World Steel Dynamics. The conference will be held 26-28 June in New York CIty.
