ST. LOUIS (Jan. 25, 2021) – Bart Stoessel has been promoted to marketing manager of The Doe Run Company (Doe Run), a global provider of mineral concentrates and a domestic lead battery recycler. In his expanded role, Stoessel manages the sales and marketing of lead, zinc, and copper concentrates and other products to outside global entities. In addition, Stoessel reviews market research and other industry information in order to provide the organization with intelligence and insights on the global concentrate market. Stoessel will continue to report to Jose Hansen, vice president – sales and marketing.

“Bart has played an ever-increasing role in the commercial side of our business,” stated Hansen. “During his eight years at Doe Run, Bart helped the sales team transition from primarily supplying lead concentrates to our former domestic, primary smelter to selling 100% of our concentrates to customers around the world. His proven track record, as well as his previous operational experience, supports our goal of providing our global customers with the quality concentrates and metals they have come to expect.”

Doe Run’s lead, zinc, and copper concentrates and metals ultimately support many of today’s industrial innovations and infrastructure. For example, lead batteries are essential for electric and hybrid-electric vehicles and for storing power from renewable energy sources. Unlike other battery technologies, lead batteries have a nearly 100% recycling rate, contributing to a more sustainable, circular economy.

Prior to joining Doe Run, Stoessel held a variety of engineering positions, including quality engineer at a commercial heat treating company, where he maintained the quality management systems, as well as helped develop sales opportunities for customers needing heat treatment services in the automotive and tool and die sectors. Stoessel also held several engineering positions in both quality and operations at a major domestic steel producer.

Stoessel has a Bachelor of Science in metallurgical engineering from Missouri University of Science and Technology (formerly University of Missouri – Rolla) and an MBA from Webster University.
