Jeremy Flack is the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Flack Global Metals (FGM). FGM has created a company like no other – a hybrid organization that merges flat-rolled steel and aluminum distribution, international commodity trading, and financial services into one business platform. As CEO, Jeremy has been an industry leader in bringing the physical steel market and the derivatives markets together within one organization. FGM is the first flat rolled metals distributor business platform to combine physical material with financial futures, all with the goal of creating certainty for its customers as well as FGM itself.
With his uncommon combination of financial services acumen and in-depth metals knowledge, Jeremy has long been an outspoken pioneer in his public support of risk management and hedging to bring certainty to an industry well known for its pricing volatility. Jeremy was first introduced to the steel industry while a commercial banker with PNC Bank. After that role, he served as the Chief Financial Officer of a small manufacturing business and saw firsthand the impact of raw materials prices on a company’s balance sheet. His career in the steel industry began in 1998 as a salesperson for a small steel distributor in Cleveland, Ohio where he rose to part owner in 2006 and President in 2009. In 2010, Jeremy founded Flack Steel, which became Flack Global Metals in 2016.
Jeremy has his MBA from Cleveland State University and his undergraduate degree in Finance from Miami (Ohio) University. He is a graduate of the Counsel of Smaller Enterprises Strategic Planning course and National Outdoor Leadership School.
