ST. LOUIS (July 13, 2023) –The Doe Run Company (Doe Run) has hired industry veteran Carlos Henriques as director of sales and marketing. In his new position, Henriques will guide the company’s commercial efforts as it delivers premium mineral concentrates and metal products to customers across the globe.

Henriques brings nearly three decades of sales, marketing, business development and supply chain experience to Doe Run, focused primarily on the metals, mining, automotive, and manufacturing industries in the U.S., Latin America and Europe.

“Carlos’ deep experience in the global market aligns well with our customer base,” said Lou Magdits, vice president – sales and marketing at Doe Run. “As the globe competes to bring forth new green energy sources, our lead, copper, and zinc products will be in high demand. With his understanding of the mining and metals industry and experience in the automotive market, Carlos will enable us to capitalize on new opportunities and strengthen our existing relationships.”

Doe Run’s business is closely connected to the automotive industry. Approximately 85% of the lead Doe Run produces is used in lead batteries for cars, including electric vehicles. The company also recycles about 8 million lead batteries each year.

“I’m eager to assist in Doe Run’s growth,” stated Henriques. “The quality of our base mineral products is well-understood, and the access we have to critical minerals including cobalt, nickel, tin and antimony in resources we own will enable a whole new generation of electrification. It is an exciting time to be working for Doe Run.”

Prior to joining Doe Run, Henriques held a variety of management positions supporting the metals trading business and other related businesses with multi-national companies such as Johnson & Johnson, Arcelor, Votorantim, and most recently Metals Consulting.
