Constellium has appointed Richard B. Evans as interim chairman and CEO following the departure of former post holder Christel Bories.

Evans has more than four decades experience in the aluminium industry, most recently serving as CEO of Alcan and Rio Tinto Alcan between 2006 and 2009.

He is the former chairman of leading industry bodies, US Aluminium Association, International Aluminium Institute (IAI) and a past director of the European Aluminium Association.

The Constellium Board confirmed it has also launched a search for a permanent CEO and hope to complete this in the coming months.

A statement from the board thanked the former chief for her contribution to the company.

“Christel Bories has successfully led Constellium for the last five years including the transition of ownership from Rio Tinto to the new shareholder group, and we thank her for her service to the company over many years,”​ it added.

The France-based company, formerly Alcan Engineering Products, manufactures a range of aluminium products for a host of sectors including packaging.
