Liberty Steel Group appoints Chief Financial Officer
Liberty Steel Group, a member of the GFG Alliance, announces the appointment of V Ashok as its Chief Financial Officer with immediate effect, with responsibility for overseeing global financial reporting.
The appointment follows the recent decision to consolidate steel businesses within the GFG Alliance under one group structure with a presence in more than 10 countries, over 30,000 employees and a rolling capacity of 18 million tonnes of steel annually.
Mr Ashok will work with finance teams around the world to shape the finance structure, strategy and associated priorities of the Liberty Steel Group.
He comes into the role with over two decades of experience in finance, accounts and audit, most recently serving as Group Chief Financial Officer at Essar, a global investor in Energy, Infrastructure, Metals and Mining services.
Sanjeev Gupta, Executive Chairman of the GFG Alliance, said: “I’m delighted to welcome Ashok as we continue to strengthen our global operations. This is an important appointment as we work to integrate processes and functions within our global steel businesses, and as we embark upon our journey towards the creation of a carbon neutral steel organisation by 2030.”
Mr Ashok said: “Liberty Steel Group is an exciting business with the potential to take a commercial and environmental leadership position in the industry. I’m looking forward to working with Sanjeev Gupta and the rest of the team to make the newly consolidated business a success.”
