Kevin KramerKevin Kramer joined Alcoa seven years ago after a 21-year run at Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company. He came on as President of the Wheel and Structure Division before becoming President of Growth Initiatives in 2009. Kramer’s duties are many, with an overarching goal to “develop the language of growth [for Alcoa], but just as importantly, work with the business units and make sure we’re driving organic growth and tying together the great story of sustainability,” he says. “What we’re really trying to do is find great, innovative ways to drive sustainable growth for Alcoa globally.” Kramer has examined aluminum’s application on commercial properties and how Alcoa can continue to reduce greenhouse gas emissions — studies have shown that aluminum-intensive building can reduce those emissions by more than 20%.
