Last Chance – MSCI’S Annual Meeting Starts On May 5

MSCI’s Annual Meeting begins this weekend (Sunday, May 5) and runs until Tuesday, May 7 at the Park Hyatt Aviara Resort Golf Club and Spa in Carlsbad, Calif., but there is still time to register.

You won’t want to miss this event where participants will hear from Colonel (Ret.) Greg Gadson. A highly decorated military officer, Gadson was commanding a unit in Iraq when he was severely wounded by an explosive device, resulting in the loss of both legs above the knee and a severely damaged right arm and hand. Despite his injury, Gadson remained on active duty service in the military until 2014 and continues to inspire many with his message, which is based on the lessons of “Pride, Poise, and Team” that he learned as a star West Point football player.

Join us for this important conversation, and as MSCI recognizes an outstanding individual with its Lifetime Achievement Award: Michael D. Siegal, Executive Chairman of Olympic Steel. Siegal’s 45-year career at Olympic Steel is one of corporate America’s great success stories.

Other Annual Meeting speakers include:

  • John J. Ferriola, Chairman, President & Chief Executive Officer, Nucor
  • Alan Kestenbaum, Chairman/CEO, and President, Stelco
  • Conrad Winkler, President & CEO, Evraz NA
  • Barry M. Zekelman, Executive Chairman & Chief Executive Officer, Zekelman Industries

The Annual Meeting also will feature Dr. Donald R. McNeeley, president and CEO of Chicago Tube and Iron Company. Dr. McNeeley started at CTI in 1972 and has been able to navigate the company through the ups and downs of the industry. Additionally, as a clinical professor at Northwestern University, he teaches a masters capstone course and advises doctoral students.

Dr. McNeeley will share his perspectives on the metals industry’s challenges in recruiting, training, and retaining top talent. He also will interview a panel of students from Texas A&M’s Industrial Distribution program regarding their career decisions and how your company can attract them.
