Global Brass And Copper Holdings, Inc. Appoints Jeffrey Byrd Vice President, Marketing And Sales Of Olin Brass Mill Products

Global Brass and Copper Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: BRSS) (“GBC” or the “Company”) today announced that Jeffrey Byrd will assume the role of Vice President, Marketing and Sales of Olin Brass Mill Products, effective immediately. Olin Brass Mill Products is a division of GBC Metals, LLC (d/b/a Olin Brass), GBC’s largest subsidiary.

“Jeff’s prior experience with strategic deployment, rigorous business systems integration and comprehensive supply chain management will catalyze crucial components of our strategic framework,” said Bill Toler, President of Olin Brass Mill Products. “We’re excited to welcome Jeff to our team and employ his unique skill set quickly.”

With this role, Mr. Byrd assumes accountability for leading all aspects of Mill Product’s commercial efforts, synchronizing Olin Brass’s marketing and sales planning process and championing further development and expansion of GBC’s CuVerro ® product line.

Mr. Byrd joined GBC in 2012, with 25 years of prior metals industry experience, to help integrate key business systems across the corporation. He most recently served as the Vice President of Operations and Supply Chain at the Company’s A.J. Oster subsidiary. During his career, Mr. Byrd has held a wide variety of global and domestic Materials, Commercial, Supply Chain and Manufacturing leadership roles.

Mr. Byrd succeeds Tom Werner who has announced his intent to retire at the end of this year. Mr. Werner joined Olin Brass in 2010 to lead the Company’s commercial transformation. “In addition to refocusing Olin Brass’s external presence and perspective, Tom has provided critical leadership in reinvigorating our bactericidal copper efforts, elevating CuVerro ® from an intriguing concept to a market reality,” explained Toler.

“Tom will help ensure Jeff’s successful transition into role and will remain a valuable member of the executive team, reporting to me as the Executive Advisor, Business Development, through the remainder of the year,” Toler concluded.
