Jay Robinovitz has been promoted to the role of chief executive officer of Alter Trading Corporation.

Robinovitz will retain his prior title of president and will also become a member of the Alter Trading board of directors. His leadership at Alter over the past eight years, coupled with his long history of success in the recycling industry make him uniquely qualified for his new role. This promotion is an important step in the company’s succession planning process.

Michael Goldstein has been promoted to the new role of corporate vice president of operations. He will report to Robinovitz and will oversee the daily operations of all 60 operating and processing facilities. Goldstein joined the company in 2009 and has taken on numerous assignments giving him broad exposure to metals recycling operations, domestic and international ferrous and nonferrous marketing, mergers, acquisitions and related integration activities. Goldstein represents the fifth generation of the Alter & Goldstein families in executive roles at the company, and this assignment positions him in a key leadership role.

Robert Goldstein will transition to the role of executive chairman of Alter Trading Corporation. Goldstein has been with the company since 1969 and most recently serves as chairman of the Alter Trading board and as chief executive officer. He also serves as chairman of the board and chief executive officer for Alter’s parent company, the Goldstein Group and held the position of chairman of the Isle of Capri Casinos until its divestiture earlier this year.
