As GBS President, Bottger will oversee Alcoa’s procurement, shared services and information technology organizations. He has held a wide variety of corporate and business unit operational and financial roles since joining Alcoa in 1980.

Collins has been Assistant Controller since 2009 with responsibility for the Company’s global financial accounting policies. He joined Alcoa in 2005.

“Graeme and Bob have successful track records in increasingly challenging roles and are ideally qualified to lead functions critical to Alcoa,” said Klaus Kleinfeld, Alcoa Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “Both have been instrumental to the success of our cash sustainability program, which has strengthened Alcoa’s cost structure and balance sheet. These appointments demonstrate Alcoa’s strong talent pipeline.”

Bottger was named Controller in July 2010 and has had oversight of the Accounting and Financial Planning and Analysis departments that play a key role in enabling Alcoa to be the first major company to report its earnings each quarter. A former Chief Financial Officer of Engineered Products and Solutions, he has also worked in Alcoa’s GBS, procurement, IT and sales organizations in Australia and the United States. He earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Commerce and Computer Science at Australia’s Deakin University.
