Mark Vrablec oversees Alcoa’s global rolled product activities in the aerospace, ground transportation, and industrial and specialty products markets.  He was named President, Global Aerospace, Ground Transportation and Industrial and Specialty Products for Alcoa’s Global Rolled Products (GRP) business in September 2011.  GRP has operations in the U.S., Europe, U.K, Russia and Asia, and in 2013 will open a state-of-the-art rolling mill in Saudi Arabia.  

Prior to his present assignment, Mark was President, China Rolled Products, Managing Director for Alcoa Australia Rolled Products, and Vice President, GRP Technology and Engineering.  Under his leadership, Alcoa’s China Rolled Products business was growing about three times faster than the overall market in China.

Mark has spent his nearly 30-year career with Alcoa in operating and management assignments in Alcoa’s global rolled products organization.  He joined the company in 1982 as a metallurgist in the company’s Tennessee Operations.  While there, he held a series of quality assurance and manufacturing assignments, including Ingot and Can Reclamation Manager. He moved to Alcoa’s Warrick (Ind.) facility in 1995 as Hot Mill Manager, progressed to Quality and Customer Service Manager for Tennessee and Warrick and then Fabricating Manager at Warrick.  In 1999, Mark was named Director of Manufacturing for Lancaster (Pa.) and Texarkana (Texas) and, subsequently, assumed additional responsibility for Alcoa’s Lebanon (Pa.) Works.  Two years later, Mark became Director of Manufacturing at Davenport (Iowa) Works, and took on responsibilities for Alcoa Aerospace Centers and Danville Operations in 2003.  Mark was appointed Managing Director of Alcoa Australia Rolled Products in 2008. While in this assignment, his responsibilities grew to include President, China Rolled Products in 2010.  A year later, he added Vice President, GRP Technology and Engineering to his accountabilities. 

Mark graduated from Lehigh University in Pennsylvania in 1982 with a degree in Metallurgy and Materials Science and began working for Alcoa shortly thereafter.  He and his wife, Janice, have two children, Laura and Adam.
