THE EXPERIENCE YOU NEED –
Since 1973, John Gross has been associated with
worldwide leaders in every sector of the metals
business. Examples include Amax Inc. and Hudson
Bay Mining and Smelting. On the consumer side, he
played a key role with BICC Cables Corporation,
now General Cable, as Vice President of Strategic
Metals for their North American wire & cable
operations, and more recently, was Director of Metals
Management with Scott Brass. Valuable merchant experience
was acquired through his association with Ametalco
and Amax Copper, and as a futures broker with Johnson
Matthey & Wallace, he specialized in metals
on the New York Commodity Exchange and London Metal
Exchange. Thus, over the past thirty-five years,
he has developed a solid understanding of the industry
based on first hand experience.

client companies are directly involved in nonferrous
metals such copper, aluminum, lead, tin, nickel
and zinc as producers or consumers, or indirectly
dependent upon metals in the manufacturing process,
or providing services such as telephone, transit,

and chemical companies; accounting and law firms,
as well as other consulting companies who require
a highly specialized knowledge of the metals industry,
not usually found within their organizations.

full understanding of their needs and objectives.

provide the knowledge, experience, resourcefulness
