Executive VP, Ferrous Minerals
Marcello Spinelli was appointed Vale’s Executive Vice President for ferrous minerals. He was made the head of the Ferrous Minerals and Coal Executive Department, but it was then split into two parts in order to ensure a special focus on the company’s main product. Spinelli returned to Vale in May 2019, after nine years working at logistics company Valor da Logística Integrada (VLI).
He was chosen for the position in line with Vale’s new strategic pillars of safety and operational excellence, its new pact with society, and the need to maximize the flight to quality in iron ore.
