Jerry Pyatt is proud to be a second-generation Doe Run employee and to spend his entire career with the company. He gained valuable first-hand experience across the company’s operations with roles in the laboratory, at Resource Recycling, in mining and milling, and overseeing smelter operations; ultimately rising to COO before becoming president and CEO in 2013. Jerry leads our Executive Team that sets the company’s vision, mission and strategy.
The ability to motivate positive change within Doe Run and the industry defines Jerry’s career.
“Leading the development of our breakthrough hydrometallurgical metal production technology is a highlight of my career. We’re determined to bring this technology to the industry. It will provide increased value to the industry and Doe Run, and, most importantly, enable us to deliver on our environmental goals.”
Jerry supports the next generation of metals and mining industry leaders as a member of the Mining & Explosives Engineering Development Board at Missouri University of Science and Technology. He serves on the board of the Battery Council International and is a past board member of the St. Louis Regional Chamber and St. Louis Regional Business Council.
Raised in southeastern Missouri, Jerry enjoys the great hunting and fishing in the area, as well as family time with his grandchildren. He also gives back to the community as a board member for Teen Challenge of St. Louis.
He attended both the University of Missouri-Columbia and Missouri S&T and holds a bachelor’s degree in agriculture with a minor in chemistry and advanced courses in metallurgy. He is also a graduate of the Stanford University Executive Program.
Tony Bogolin leads the Doe Run finance and human resources teams to achieve growth through proactive financial, strategic and operational guidance. Tony believes fiscal responsibility and a progressive approach to managing our employees are both critical to enabling Doe Run to continue to achieve success:
“Solid fiscal practices and employee engagement are critical cornerstones for any business. At Doe Run, our accounting and finance department works to support the operations and provide the financial tools to manage both the day-to-day business and strategically position us for the future.”
“Our people make all of this possible. Whether focusing on delivering quality products and services to our customers and communities, or supporting our internal customers, we strive to be the “employer of choice” and enable our workforce to be the best they can be.”
Tony joined the Doe Run team in 2019 as treasurer, where he led the company’s treasury management, credit and collections, and financing activities.
Tony is a certified public accountant with over 30 years of knowledge and expertise, including executive-level responsibilities for finance, accounting and operations. He holds a bachelor’s degree in accounting from Truman State University.
Jose V. Hansen
Jose Hansen likes challenges, and matching Doe Run’s concentrate and metal sales to the global market can certainly be a challenge.
“Every day represents a new opportunity to see how we can align our resources and actions with what is taking place in the global marketplace for the benefit of our company and our employees.”
One of Jose’s greatest challenges was managing the transition from selling primary metals as our core business to becoming a global mineral concentrates business when we closed the last U.S. primary smelting operation. His team worked hard to make this transition as smooth as possible for customers and the company.
Jose tackles challenges outside the office too – regularly supporting organizations that help underprivileged citizens and their families.
And, he shares his nearly 40 years of expertise as a mining industry leader to help the industry improve. He speaks at industry conferences, and is an active member of Battery Council International, International Lead and Zinc Study Group, Minor Metals Trade Association and the International Precious Metals Institute.
Jose received his metallurgical engineering degree from the Universidad de Lima (University of Lima, Peru) where he also taught specialty courses to the faculty of Metallurgical Engineering. He received his MBA from Universidad del Pacifico (Lima, Peru).
Michael Montgomery brings a well-rounded perspective to his role of vice president – environmental affairs by having both an engineering and legal perspective on environmental regulation and compliance. Michael relies on this perspective to help Doe Run meet its commitments to environmental stewardship and regulatory compliance.
Michael leads Doe Run’s Environmental Affairs group in implementing our commitment to sustainable operations, identifying and minimizing risk, analyzing systems and processes to monitor compliance and continuing to strengthen our relationships with regulatory agencies.
For nearly a decade, he has supported Doe Run’s regulatory compliance efforts, starting as senior attorney and rising to director of regulatory affairs before being named vice president. Prior to joining Doe Run, Michael represented companies from various industrial sectors in remediation and regulatory compliance matters as outside counsel. Before attending law school, Michael worked as a field environmental specialist, environmental engineer and civil engineer.
He earned his law degree from Washington University in St. Louis, a master’s of science in environmental engineering from Lamar University and a bachelor’s of science in civil engineering from the University of Missouri – Rolla (now Missouri University of Science and Technology).
A visionary and enthusiastic leader, Dr. Anthony Staley’s operational and hydrometallurgy experience is helping to drive change throughout Doe Run’s Metals Division, where Anthony oversees a team of more than 300 employees. This includes the Resource Recycling facility in Boss, Missouri – one of the world’s largest single-site lead battery recycling facilities – as well as the refinery in Herculaneum, Missouri, where metal alloying and casting takes place.
“The lead battery industry provides stored energy that starts our cars, provides emergency back-up power, keeps cell service operating and stores renewable energy – all in a device that can be recycled to create new batteries. How we do this better and better each day inspires me.”
Anthony brings deep expertise from more than 20 years of working at large-scale mining and metal production facilities across the globe. He stays connected to the latest trends in the industry as a member of the Society of Mining, Metallurgy and Exploration, and Mining & Metallurgical Society of America (MMSA).
He attended the Colorado School of Mines, where he earned a doctorate in metallurgy and materials engineering, master’s degree in business and economics, and bachelor’s degree in chemical and petroleum-refining engineering.

“There are a number of exciting projects underway at Doe Run, including development of new mines and projects that help us recover greater mineral value from our concentrates through new technologies. Bringing these opportunities online is a rewarding challenge.”
John has over 25 years of experience working with major mining companies. He is a recognized technical expert in sulfide processing of copper, heap bioleaching and pressure oxidation, and has authored more than 20 publications. John also serves on the Society for Mining, Metallurgy and Exploration (SME) Board of Directors and is a member of the Mining and Metallurgical Society of America (MMSA).
John earned a bachelor’s degree in Geological Engineering from Michigan Technological University, a master’s in Geology from the University of Wyoming, and a Ph.D. in Metallurgical Engineering from Michigan Technological University.
