“With her successful track record in challenging assignments in Australia and the U.S., Libby has the ideal background and skills to take on this vital communications role at an important moment in Alcoa’s 125 th history,” said Mr. Kleinfeld. “Communications will play a major role in driving the growth of Alcoa’s value add businesses and supporting our actions to improve the competitiveness of our upstream business.

Before joining Alcoa, Ms. Archell consulted on media relations and crisis communication to major resource companies. She started her career in government relations in the NGO sector and also was a speechwriter for Australian state government officials. In 2012, she was named to the prestigious Australian-American Young Leadership Dialogue. She holds a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Western Australia.
