Worthington Names New President Of Pressure Cylinders

Worthington Industries, Inc. (NYSE:WOR) announced today that Andrew Billman will become the next president of Worthington Cylinders, replacing Harry Goussetis who is retiring at the end of July. Billman has been with the Company in various positions for more than 15 years, most recently as the vice president of corporate purchasing.

“Andy brings a great deal of experience and leadership to his new role; he will be an excellent addition to our executive team,” Chairman and CEO John McConnell said. “The Company has benefitted from his role in our transformation efforts in steel processing and in applying a disciplined approach to our supply chain improvements."

Billman began with Worthington Steel in inside sales, later becoming a territory manager, and manager of special accounts. He gained experience outside of Worthington beginning in 2001 when he was vice president of sales and marketing for a private manufacturer. He managed a facility and served as the company’s vice president of operations. He returned to Worthington Steel in 2006 as national account manager and then as the east region sales manager in Baltimore, where the Company launched the transformation initiative in the steel processing segment. He was an integral part of the transformation. Billman became the head of corporate purchasing in January of 2010.
