Wisnoski will coordinate capital-intensive growth and asset management projects across Alcoa’s worldwide businesses and be a member of Alcoa’s Executive Council. The group comprises three units: Engineering and Construction, led by Otto Hiris, Vice President of Engineering and Construction; Asset Planning and Management, led by Mark Stiffler, who was promoted from Director to Vice President of Asset Planning and Management; and International Project Development, led by Wisnoski, who will continue to lead the Ma’aden-Alcoa joint venture construction project.

“By linking Alcoa’s health and safety initiatives with our Human Resources’ responsibility for employee wellness, medical benefits and training, we have strengthened Alcoa’s ability to ensure the welfare of our employees,” said Klaus Kleinfeld, Alcoa Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “The new project development and asset management group will play an important role in Alcoa’s growth, developing and constructing new projects and managing the disposition and remediation of curtailed assets.”
