We’re Used to Putting Our Own Dollars on the Line.
Our DNA starts with metals trading (as in physical metals trading), with our own capital, rather than economics or procurement. After apprenticing at an aluminum trading company, Lisa Reisman, owned and operated her own aluminum import-export company, in addition to later leading cost reduction initiatives as a management consultant. Stuart Burns, is a lifelong metals trader and sourcing expert.
Today’s entire leadership team has nearly 100 years of metals industry experience managing metal market volatility across carbon steel, aluminum and stainless steel.
Since the firm’s founding, the motley crew of senior procurement professionals, technical traders, data scientists and analysts have come together to trade off the firm’s own metal market intelligence. Operating their own internal hedge fund, MetalMiner has more than “backtested” its forecasts. It trades on them!
A third-generation metals enthusiast, Lisa is co-founder and CEO of MetalMiner. With a background in physical metal trading, management consulting and executive leadership, Lisa has a proven entrepreneurial track record.
Stuart has over 35 years of international metal supply experience including twenty+ years running a metals distribution business with sales in 26 countries on five continents. He is considered an expert in global metals trading and sourcing.
