5N Plus appoints CFO to aid growth strategy

Specialty metal and chemical products firm 5N Plus Inc of Montreal, Qu├ębec, Canada has appointed Richard Perron as chief financial officer, effective 17 March.

He succeeds David Langlois, who is leaving the firm to pursue other interests. “I would like to thank David Langlois for his work and support over the years,” comments president & CEO Jacques L’Ecuyer.

5N Plus provides specialty purified metals such as bismuth, gallium, germanium, indium, antimony, cadmium, selenium and tellurium, and also produces related II-VI semiconducting compounds such as cadmium telluride (CdTe), cadmium sulphide (CdS) and indium antimonide (InSb) as precursors for the growth of crystals for solar, LED and eco-friendly materials applications.

Perron has nearly 20 years of international experience as a finance professional. Since 2006, he has held progressively more senior roles, gaining experience within ArcelorMittal and more recently as CFO and strategy manager at Long Carbon Americas (one of ArcelorMittal’s most important business units). In that role, he was responsible for all countries of the Americas (generating $11bn in annual sales, with 17,900 staff and more than 25 key operations and plants in countries including Canada, USA, Mexico, Costa Rica, Trinidad and Tobago, Brazil and Argentina). From 1999 to 2006, he served as director, finance and control & chief information officer at Danfoss Turbocor Compressors Inc (part of The Danfoss Group).

Perron has a B.Com. degree in Accounting from Concordia University, an M.Sc. in Administration, Management and Accounting, and an M.B.A. from the University of Sherbrooke. He is a certified public accountant (CPA) in the USA (IL & DE) and a chartered professional accountant in the Province of Quebec, Canada.

“His broad in-depth knowledge of the market, strong leadership skills and hands-on approach will greatly contribute to help us execute our growth strategy, which calls for both organic and acquisition-related initiatives,” comments L’Ecuyer.
