Succeeding Harvey as GPP CFO is Leigh Ann Fisher, who had been Group Controller for GPP. Fisher will also become a member of the Executive Council.

"Roy has an impressive international track record, leading complex operations in Brazil, Spain and Central America," said Klaus Kleinfeld, Alcoa Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "As an experienced CFO Roy has acute financial expertise and operational insight. And his investor relations background gives him a strong appreciation for the expectations of shareholders, which he has demonstrated by bringing discipline and rigor to operational and financial processes.

"Leigh Ann’s solid foundation in finance, spanning upstream and downstream businesses at Alcoa, will add valuable perspective to our senior leadership team,” Kleinfeld said. “She has made important contributions to our success by driving systemic improvements in financial processes such as forecast accuracy, financial modeling and reporting.”
