09 March 2021

The International Molybdenum Association (IMOA) has announced that Eva Model has been appointed as their next Secretary-General, effective September 1st, 2021. She will succeed Tim Outteridge, who announced his retirement in September 2020. 

Eva has a detailed knowledge of the Association, having previously served on its Executive Committee and as its Vice-President and President. She will join the IMOA Secretariat on June 1st, 2021 and will assume the role of Secretary-General after a short transition period. Her wealth of experience of the molybdenum industry includes over 20 years at Rio Tinto, culminating in her position as General Manager, responsible for the sales and marketing of all products from the Kennecott Utah Copper mine and processing facilities in Salt Lake City, including copper cathode, molybdenum, rhenium, precious metals and by-products.     

Eva’s recent experience of leading a trade association in her current role as General Manager of the Minor Metals Trade Association, coupled with her molybdenum industry knowledge, makes her the ideal person to drive IMOA forward in the coming years.
