Millett has driven innovation in advanced flat roll steel products and continues to lead in further developing steel technologies, expanding product capabilities, adding value, and creating supply chain solutions. His leadership team has created a best-in-class, innovative steel company that has been committed to operating in an environmentally responsible manner since its founding.
Steel Dynamics based in Fort Wayne, Indiana, is continuing its extensive growth strategy through the greenfield construction of an environmentally responsible, technologically advanced, state-of-the-art, electric arc furnace flat roll steel mill in Sinton, Texas, with operations expected to begin later this summer.
Prior to being named CEO, Millett held various leadership positions within Steel Dynamics, including president and chief operating officer, executive vice president of metals recycling and ferrous resources, and executive vice president of flat roll steel operations. He previously served in various leadership roles at Nucor Corporation, including leading the design, construction and operation of the melting and casting area at the world’s first electric arc furnace thin-slab flat roll steel mill in Crawfordsville, Indiana.
