“When I talk to our employees, I feel their enthusiasm for our business and their desire to help others learn about the role minerals and metals play on our lives. This is more important now than ever as we support the battery technologies required to meet the critical needs of our country, like clean energy. Thanks to Doe Run’s history of innovation and forward-looking research and development, we are well-positioned to be essential to this growth.”

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).

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 business, where Anthony oversees a team of more than 300 employees at Resource Recycling in Boss, Missouri – one of the world’s largest single-site lead battery recycling facilities.
“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 bachelor’s degree in chemical and petroleum-refining engineering, a master’s degree in business and economics, and a doctorate in metallurgy and materials engineering.
Brian Mangogna brings more than 20 years of Doe Run experience to lead the company’s Southeast Missouri Mining and Milling Division (SEMO). As the vice president – mining and milling, Brian oversees the more than 650 employees at Doe Run’s six mines and four mills in the Viburnum Trend, which supply the globe with lead, copper and zinc concentrates.
“We operate one of the largest lead mining districts in the world, right here in Missouri. Many of us who work in our mines and mills have lived in this region for generations, and we understand the important role that mining and minerals plays, not just in our own local economy but in supporting a modern society. I’m inspired to know that the concentrates we produce here are being used globally to start vehicles, support communications and back-up power, and create cleaner energy infrastructure.”
Beginning his career as a metallurgist, Brian advanced to roles as mill manager and general manager for SEMO. During his tenure, he has overseen ISO environmental certification at each mill location, improved metallurgy and metal recovery, and developed more efficient processes for shipping Doe Run’s lead and zinc concentrates globally.
Brian received a bachelor’s degree in metallurgical engineering from University of Missouri – Rolla (now Missouri S&T) and a master’s degree in business administration from Webster University.
