IMOA appoints new Secretary-General

04/03/2021

The International Molybdenum Association (IMOA) announced today that Eva Model has been appointed as its next Secretary-General, effective September 1, 2021. She will succeed Tim Outteridge, who announced his retirement in September 2020.

Eva has a detailed knowledge of the Association, having previously served on its Executive Committee and as its Vice-President and President. She will join the IMOA Secretariat on June 1, 2021 and will assume the role of Secretary-General after a short transition period. Her wealth of experience of the molybdenum industry includes over 20 years at Rio Tinto, culminating in her position as General Manager, responsible for the sales and marketing of all products from the Kennecott Utah Copper mine and processing facilities in Salt Lake City, including copper cathode, molybdenum, rhenium, precious metals and by-products.

Eva's recent experience of leading a trade association in her current role as General Manager of the Minor Metals Trade Association, coupled with her molybdenum industry knowledge, makes her the ideal person to drive IMOA forward in the coming years.

On her appointment, Eva said:
"I'm honoured to have been chosen as IMOA's next Secretary-General. The Association has long been the independent voice of the molybdenum industry and I look forward to working with IMOA's members to continue to raise awareness and promote the important role molybdenum plays in our modern world."
